Social Services have a duty of care to protect vulnerable members of society, including children. Unfortunately, social services can often fail to intervene to protect a child despite clear indicators of potential risk.
Farleys Solicitors are specialists in assisting individuals throughout the UK with various issues which may give rise to a claim against local authorities. Even if the events occurred several years, or even decades ago, our team may still be able to help you win with a claim.
If you have been failed by social services, either in a recent case or in the past, our expert solicitors may be able to 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.
If your case relates to conduct of social services in Care Proceedings, we may be unable to help. However, we can direct you to the local authority’s complaints procedure or to the Law Society website, which provides a list of solicitors who may be able to assist.
