Child Abuse at Children’s Homes

Children’s Homes were created as places where vulnerable children were sent to help them during their formative years, possibly due to the breakdown of their own family or because their parents had passed away or were unable to care for them.

The idea was to create a sanctuary for vulnerable children where they could be given the care they needed in a safe and supportive environment.  The people who ran and worked at the Children’s Homes had a duty of care to look out for the best interest of the children who were placed there but unfortunately this did not always happen.

There are numerous examples where the standards of care at Children’s Homes dropped well below the appropriate levels and sadly, the end result of that in some cases was staff members carrying out child abuse on a number of levels:

  • Discriminatory abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Sexual abuse

In child abuse claims against Children’s Homes, not only is the employee Abuser responsible, we will successfully argue that the employer, the Children’s Home itself, is also responsible for failing to control it’s staff members and also the local Social Services who have a responsibility to oversee these homes and ensure the expected levels of child care are being met.

Expertise and Understanding from Carter & Carter Solicitors

Understandably, not many child abuse victims come forward at the time of the child abuse for feat that the abuse will become worse or that they will not be believed by those in Authority.

Many victims of child abuse will not report the child abuse unless years, possibly decades have passed and they are an adult themselves.  Just because such a long time has passed, you can still make a child abuse claim so that you can seek the justice you deserve.  Time limits do exist to make child abuse claims but we can successfully pursue your claim regardless of the length of time which has passed.

If you have been the victim of child abuse you should report it to the Police and then call us.  We provide free, confidential advice to the victims of sexual abuse whether the abuse occurred as a child or adult and we handle all sexual abuse claims with sensitivity and understanding.

We understand just how difficult it is to find the strength to talk about sexual abuse and how traumatic it is to reflect on and discuss what happened, possibly many, many years ago.  We will make sure that you feel completely safe throughout the entire abuse claims process.

100% of our child abuse claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis which means that you do not have to worry about any financial risk at all as if your abuse compensation claim is unsuccessful it will not cost you anything.
