Accountability and Reparations (media pack)

This investigation assessed the extent to which existing support services and available legal processes effectively deliver reparations to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.

It responded to multiple reports of inadequate support services, obstructive insurance companies and a civil justice system that may not deliver genuine reparation. We also examined the adequacy of other compensation schemes, including awards made following conviction in criminal proceedings and awards by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

The investigation considered five case studies from the 1960s to the present day: North Wales children’s homes; Forde Park school in Devon; St Leonard’s children’s home in London; St Aidan’s and St Vincent’s children’s homes in Cheshire and Merseyside and Stanhope Castle school in County Durham.
