Lambeth Council reports on the progress of their Children’s Home Redress Scheme puts out call for former residents with disabilities to come forward



The London Borough of Lambeth has recently reported that they are pleased with the level of engagement and the numbers of applicants who have come forward to seek redress.

The council has also identified a specific group of cared-for children who are more difficult to contact, namely those children who attended the specialist homes for people with disabilities. Under the Redress Scheme the council made a commitment that  any child in such a home was entitled, upon verification, to an automatic Harms Way Payment irrespective of whether there was evidence of being placed in harm’s way. The council is engaging with local charities and other organisations working with adult care to spread awareness. The council would welcome any other suggestions to promote publicity of the scheme and generally if there are other groups who could be usefully approached.

The council is also aware of those who may be incarcerated and it intends to extend its  adverting to include prison publications. A further local and national advertising campaign is planned for later in the year.

Hudgell solicitors acts for some 65 former residents of Lambeth’s Children’s Homes.
