"What Would 'YOUR' Suffering Be Worth To 'YOU' ?"

Abuse compensation scheme under review
Pittance May Be Extended To The
Forgotten Abuse Victims

A compensation scheme for victims of child abuse in Jersey may be widened.

It is currently restricted to people who were in care homes, but some abuse victims do not fall into the current scope of the scheme.

And there is an anomaly which has arisen following allegations that Jimmy Savile was involved in abuse at Haut de la Garenne - the limitations of the redress scheme would not include those alleged victims.

Other claimants were in foster care - also outside the scheme.

At the end of this month, the Council of Ministers is due to discuss a report from lawyers involved in the compensation scheme on a number of claims which fall outside its parameters.

The Council will also be reviewing whether the scheme should be extended to abuse suffered in foster care.

Compensation is offered on a sliding scale; from below £10,000 for physical or sexual abuse, up to £20,000 for more serious cases, to £60,000 for the worst, prolonged abuse including rape. 128 people have put in claims so far.
