Claims against Scouts and other Charities

If you have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a scout leader, or a person running a youth group, the perpetrator has abused their position of power and trust.  You may be entitled to claim compensation. 

We have brought successful claims against scouting organisations and a number of other charities.  We are familiar with adventure experts who may be required to provide specialist evidence on the failures on the part of the organisation.  Our solicitors have dealt with claims against the Scouts where the person in charge of child protection has abused children.  We have won hundreds of thousands of pounds for a victim who suffered a serious mental illness following a terrible sexual assault at a scouting event. 

Even if you suffered historic abuse, you may still be able to bring your claim. We can quickly advise you if a claim is possible and put your mind at rest.  If you or a family member would like to speak to us on a confidential, no obligation basis, please email us at
