Youth clubs should be a space for children to develop, grow and gain some independence from their parents. However, there are certain people in this world who will take advantage of these situations and groom children as soon as they get the opportunity to.
Whilst there are many safeguarding procedures to protect children in places such as youth clubs now, that has not always been the case. As a result we often see clients who have been abused whilst attending such clubs.
If you would like to discuss something that has happened to you whilst you attended a youth club then please do get in touch with us today, and our solicitors will be happy to talk you through what can be done next with complete confidentiality, if you so wish.
Whilst we know that gaining finances as a result of abuse isn’t going to make what happened disappear, but it might provide you with some opportunities to take a new direction in your life, as well as offer a certain type of closure for what has happened in the past.
Are there time limits to youth club compensation claims?
There are strict time limits to bringing about a claim for compensation, but when it comes to abuse claims, then these time limits can often be adjusted. It’s important that you speak to us as soon as you are ready to, this way we can do everything in our power to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
It can be hard to discuss abuse, and even more difficult to tell complete strangers what you have endured, that’s why the courts can be more lenient when it comes to time limits for youth club abuse compensation claims.
