Abuse Claims Farleys Solicitors LLP

Abuse in Religious Institutions

Abuse can occur in any context or setting. In the recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of cases reporting abuse that has been committed by established members of the clergy and Church. The trauma of abuse can cause permanent emotional and psychological damage as victims struggle to process what has happened. If you or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse committed by a member of the church or religious organisation it is essential you contact a specialist abuse claims solicitor.

The exposure of the deep rooted levels of systematic abuse within the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England has revealed the extent to which abuse can occur within voluntary organisations. It also revealed a series of cover ups that have taken place over the years including historical abuse committed by various religious bodies throughout the UK.

Members of the clergy had previously enjoyed the unwavering trust of the public, holding highly influential roles within the community. Unfortunately this position of authority has facilitated the physical, sexual and psychological abuse of young and vulnerable children by respected members of the church.

Often the victim is left struggling to comprehend what has happened, forced to contend with the psychological and emotional trauma that goes hand in hand with physical abuse. Feelings of disgust and

shame along with self loathing can prevent victims from speaking out as they become convinced that they deserved the abuse they were forced to endure.

Our dedicated team support victims throughout the process, treating every case with the sensitivity and discretion it deserves.
