Expert sexual abuse lawyers from Irwin Mitchell Solicitors have teamed up with RSVP to provide free legal advice for survivors we have supported in the past and those currently using our services too.
The clinics offer free legal advice to survivors across a broad range of topics, including family law matters, Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority claims and civil claims. Civil claims could be made against an individual who has committed abuse, an organisation responsible for that person (usually an employer) or an organisation that should have taken steps to prevent abuse, but failed – such as social services.
An Irwin Mitchell solicitor provides free advice alongside emotional and practical support from a member of our advocacy team.
Rosanne, from Irwin Mitchell, says ‘I looking forward to working alongside RSVP and assisting survivors with any legal issues they may have. I appreciate it can be very difficult for survivors to make contact with lawyers and so I do hope that the legal clinic will feel like a safe environment for survivors to seek the legal advice they need’.
If you would like to access this service but cannot attend the below dates, please contact the advocacy (ISVA) team on 0121 643 0301 option 2 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into accommodating your enquiry at a more convenient time for you.
