In modern society, institutions play an important role in enforcing the law, educating children and safeguarding the most vulnerable. Unfortunately, there are people who work in, or target, these institutions for the very fact that it involves working with vulnerable people. This is particularly the case where those institutions deal with children. Together we can put an end to institutional abuse.

Where a child has been sexual, physically and/or emotionally abused by someone in their capacity as an employee or volunteer of a state institution, it is possible to claim compensation for that abuse. The defendant in a compensation claim for child abuse will depend on the institution in which the abuse occurred.
