Ramsdens Solicitors are specialist lawyers who represent abuse survivors nationwide

We appreciate how extremely distressing it can be to come forward and claim compensation for childhood abuse. Our team represent both adults and children providing full support in confidence throughout the entire process. Our team can act for individuals and group actions providing advice on all aspects which may also include complaints within the local authority and claims made through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

We provide advice on legal actions for historic abuse against individual abusers, foster parents, employers and all organisations including religious, sports, charitable, social services and all others as detailed below.

We understand the need for the Survivor to instruct a Solicitor that they can trust and rely on at every stage of the process. Detailing the events that occurred during childhood will often be difficult and upsetting. It is important therefore to feel supported through this. The team is led by Natalie Marrison who, with her team, provide specialist knowledge focusing solely on such support and guidance to ensure the Survivor not only gains compensation but justice.


We understand how difficult it can be to open up about past events and will always ensure that any information provided is in strict confidence. Anyone who has suffered a sexual offence has a guaranteed legal right to anonymity. This essentially means that your name or any details which might identify you can be published.


It is still possible to make a claim for compensation even if the abuse happened many years ago. Our specialist team will be able to advise you in confidence here.

We will provide free advice here and with regard to pursuing a claim for compensation generally so that you can assess whether you wish to proceed.

If you think you may have a claim and wish to speak in confidence please contact us using the 'Quick Contact Form' or using the details below.

Existing Solicitor

It is important that the right Solicitor represents you, you must ensure that they have the expertise to advise and pursue your case, maintaining a strong relationship throughout. If you are unhappy with the advice that you are currently receiving and feel that the Solicitor is not a specialist in Child Abuse Law we are able to review your claim and provide our thoughts as to its progress free of charge.

Alternatively you may have settled your claim already but feel that the settlement was inadequate or that it was not dealt with properly by your previous Solicitor, please refer to our section on “Under Settled Abuse Claims” for further guidance.
