Abuse in the Scouts
Parents are often keen to encourage their children to become involved in a range of activities. Whilst many organisations now have safeguarding polices in place this sadly, hasn’t always been the case.
As Child Abuse Lawyers we have and are continuing to deal with cases were individuals have been abused whilst participating in the Scouts.
It is a sad fact that Scout Leaders have for many years used their position within the Scout Association to abuse children.
Our Specialist Solicitors at Jordans have successfully recovered compensation for abuse by Scout Leaders. Where a person is employed or given the responsibility for leading others by a Company/Organisation or Local Authority and that person abuses their position and commits an act of abuse or assault a claim may be possible.
Jordans Solicitors have a dedicated team of highly specialised lawyers who can ensure your claim is handled sensitively, enabling you to secure the best level of compensation from those responsible for your traumatic experiences.
