Just wondering if anyone knows if compensation STILL exists for those who have been sexually abused as a child. A close family member of mine was sexually abused by a relative for many years. Another relative contacted them (years ago) and said they were claiming for compensation and needed this other person's validation that they were abused. They also tried to encourage them to put in a claim. But this person didn't feel comfortable at the time. Now they have asked me if they are still able to put in a claim. I haven't asked the other relative about it yet. I thought I would try and help this relative alone before approaching other relative(sorry if this sounds confusing). The person is elderly now and the abuse happened when they were a child but has affected them(greatly) all their life. They still talk about the abuse and have suffered a nervous breakdown and physical breakdown as a result.Can you still claim and where do we go from here?
