As we acknowledge International Day of Charity on 5th September, it is important to raise awareness of the importance of volunteering and philanthropic activities. This day was established to mobilise and sensitise individuals across the globe to humanitarian crises and human suffering - in addition to the efforts of charitable organisations and individuals.

The date of 5th September was chosen in order to commemorate the anniversary of the passing of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 "for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace."

Charity work creates social bonding and contributes to the creation of inclusive and more resilient societies. Charity can assist with alleviating the worst effects of humanitarian crises by assisting with education, supplement public services in health care and child protection.

At Ramsdens we strive to take part and assist in the movement to provide charitable aid to those in need. Our Abuse department has specialist knowledge of Human Rights claims and child protection law. Claims under the following are commonly seen throughout our case work:

  • Article 2, the right to life;
  • Article 3, the right not to be exposed to inhumane and degrading treatment;
  • Article 6, the right to a fair trial;
  • Article 8, the right to a private and family life.

Vulnerable individuals such as children, who experience breaches of their Human Rights, by sexual abuse, physical abuse or being placed in unsuitable and turbulent homes - should be represented and provided with the necessary assistance to live a healthy and happy life.

If you or a loved one have experienced a breach of your Human Rights, our experienced Abuse Claims team headed by Natalie Marrison are here to help. For a confidential discussion, please contact the Ramsdens Abuse team on 0113 877 1834 or email
