Helping you claim for historic child abuse and sexual abuse

If you have suffered child abuse, even if it was a long time ago, our highly experienced, specialist team of child abuse solicitors can help you get the compensation and closure you deserve.

We understand that, very often, we are there for the first time people have ever spoken about what has happened to them and, for that reason, we do our best to make it as easy as possible to assess and pursue a claim.

Lambeth Council child abuse

Verisona Law is active in the IICSA and represents the second largest group in the core participants. We have also acted for clients in applying for the Lambeth Children’s Home Redress Scheme.

Support and representation

Verisona Law continues to support the survivors in their fight for justice. Pushing for acknowledgement by the police and Lambeth council regarding past failings to protect the children they were responsible for.

We are currently representing 6 core participants in the Lambeth Council strand of the IISCA and have already recovered approximately £6.7m in compensation for survivors of Lambeth Children’s home.

The disclosure of documents for the inquiry has already given specific insight into the terrible extent of Lambeth’s Council’s failings, revealing a scale of negligence (and alleged corruption) that has affected thousands of vulnerable children, at a time when they were supposed to be receiving protection and nurture.

Acknowledgement also needs to be given to the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA), who published multiple reports setting out the testimonies and evidence of survivors relating to the abuse that occurred, which has further facilitated the inquiry’s proper consideration on the allegations of executive level  cover-ups and potential police collusion. Verisona Law has worked closely with SOSA to ensure that the survivors are supported throughout the process.

In partnership with SOSA

Verisona Law works alongside SOSA, supporting the victims of abuse.
