Can you HELP?

This is a list of children's homes and institutions that I am currently investigating on behalf of clients, and if you have information please contact me:

"Green Field House", Maidenhead
Haut de la Garenne, Jersey
"Winton House", Winchester
St. Mary's Convent, Gravesend, Kent
St. Anthony's Prepartory School Stoney Stratford

I am also looking for "victims" of Clement Prescott known as "Uncle Clem" by some. He was the brother of "Don" Prescott who was the warden of Green Field House, Maidenhead. "Clem" I am told ran his own children's homes.

Here is an extract from the BBC article on Green Field House:

Nine men abused in a children's home 40 years ago have received an out-of-court payout from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead totalling more than £300,000. The abuse took place between 1964 and 1970 at the council-run Green Field House in Maidenhead, Berkshire. The home was then managed by the late Don Prescott, who is alleged to have abused the boys and rented them out to other paedophiles.

"It was the centre of a paedophile ring numbering so many men some of the boys lost count of those who abused them" said Alan Collins their solicitor.

"They suffered the most horrendous abuse - it was the worst type of sexual abuse. They were filmed, photographed and had to take part in the abuse. What was surprising was that it went on for six years." 

Charles has considerable specialist experience in pursuing claims for compensation for those who have been abused in childhood. His specific expertise means that he is recognised locally, nationally and internationally for his work which has taken him all over the world including, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

He is also recognised for his significant involvement in the high profile litigation against St Georges School (Anglemoss Limited) and Cyntwell High School. These cases involved a staggering number of individuals who pursued those responsible whom despite heavily defending the claims brought against them settled by way of out of court settlements.

Charles regularly features in local and national press and he is often asked to provide his professional opinion and commentary on relevant abuse law issues and developments on radio and television broadcasts. Such broadcasts include BBC South Today, BBC Wales, ITV and ITN News.

Charles is a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.
