Making a claim
We understand how very difficult it must be for the victim or survivor to report or discuss abuse. There are a number of agencies and helplines, many of which operate 24/7, that can offer you advice and support. For details of organisations that can help please see the further information and contacts section at the bottom of this page.
If you, or someone you know, want to make a PSA claim against an organisation or someone who has represented it, we strongly advise you to seek advice and guidance from an independent solicitor. Making a claim is a legal process, and a specialist solicitor can guide you through that process. The Law Society lists lawyers and their areas of expertise here.
If the organisation against which you want to make a claim is insured by Ecclesiastical, please be aware that you cannot make your claim directly to us – it must be made to the organisation directly and include a number of key facts.* Again, an independent solicitor can advise you on how to make your claim to the organisation concerned.
