Claims Against Social Services

Making a Claim Against Social Services

Social Services have a duty of care to protect vulnerable members of society, including children. Unfortunately, social services can often get things drastically wrong, often failing to intervene to protect a child despite clear indicators of potential risk.

Farleys Solicitors are specialists in assisting people with claims against local authorities throughout the UK and have helped many people who have suffered at the hands of social services.  Even if the events occurred several years, or even decades ago, our team may still be able to help you with a claim.

If you have been subjected to any form of mistreatment by social services, either in a recent case or in the past, our expert solicitors can help you to pursue a compensation claim. To speak to a solicitor who specialises in claims against social services, call 0330 134 6430, or alternatively, you can email us. All enquiries are treated with the strictest confidence.
