Will My Benefits be Affected?

We provide free, confidential advice to the victims of sexual and physical abuse whether the abuse occurred as a child or adult and understand just how difficult it is to find the strength to talk about sexual or physical abuse

100% of our abuse compensation 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.

State Benefits

In certain circumstances, means tested benefits can be affected if you receive a lump sum of money arising out of an abuse compensation claim.

If you are in receipt of Means Tested State Benefits and/or Local Authority Support and/or Tax Credits, these benefits could be reduced or withdrawn following receipt of your award of abuse compensation.

 

What We Will Do

Once a figure for your abuse compensation has been agreed, depending on the amount you are due to receive, we can instruct a firm of Financial Advisors to protect your Benefits position by setting up what is called a ‘Trust’.

By creating this special Trust, you will be able to safeguard any abuse compensation payment so the abuse compensation is effectively ignored by the DSS and as such you will be able to continue to receive the State Benefits.

Meeting Us

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

We are able to give you immediate 24-hour legal representation and rehabilitation no matter where you are in England, Scotland or Wales. We also provide urgent:

  • Home visits
  • Face to face meeting at one of our private meeting rooms based in most UK cities
