Abuse in Sports Clubs
Sports are considered a vital part of a child’s development and sports clubs can be enormously positive environments. We place a great deal of trust in those that work and volunteer with children.
A club has a responsibility to keep the children safe and make sure that those people working with children pose no danger. Unfortunately, sometimes this is not the case. As we have seen in the recent high-profile issues surrounding abuse in football clubs and the ongoing FA investigation children have been targeted and abused in sports clubs. This is not just limited to football and there have been cases of abuse in swimming, gymnastic and tennis clubs.
WE WORKED CLOSELY WITH ARTHUR AND PAUL ON WHAT WERE VERY DIFFICULT CASES TO ACHIEVE DAMAGES FOR THEM.
Arthur and Paul’s Story
Arthur and Paul were brothers who were sexually abused when children by a member of their church.
The abuse took place at an important time in their schooling and meant they significantly underachieved academically and therefore struggled to find and hold down work. We worked closely with them on what were difficult cases. We worked out what they would probably have done with their lives if the abuse had not happened.
How did we help?
We achieved damages of more than £100,000 each. This enabled them to attend college and get started in careers which would help them support their families.

Church and Clergy Abuse Claims
If you or your child has been abused by someone working for the church then we could help you claim compensation from those responsible.
We have a dedicated team of child abuse lawyers with experience of claims involving sexual and physical abuse by priests, vicars, curates, ministers and volunteers and others in positions of authority within various religious orders.
Abuse in a Children's Home or Residential Institution
Children can be placed in a children’s home or other residential institution (e.g. a clinical treatment centre or specialist residential school) by Social Services for a variety of reasons, however the purpose is always to ensure that child’s safety, well-being and development. Unfortunately, sometimes a child may suffer abuse and neglect by staff, volunteers or other residents.
In such circumstances it may be possible to bring a claim for compensation for the damage caused by the abuse and neglect.
