Institutional Abuse

Institutional Abuse

Compensation can’t change the past, but it can empower your future?

Coming to terms with emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, regardless of when it occurred, can be difficult. While no amount of money can erase the harm caused, compensation may be available to help you access the care and support services you need.

If you’ve been a victim of abuse whilst in the care of an institution, you deserve compensation.

“In a widely anticipated and publicised move, the Prime Minister has recently delivered a national apology to survivors of institutional child sexual abuse.

 The apology is a step in the healing process for many survivors.
