Helping survivors of historic abuse.
Giving trauma support and financial justice to those who need it most.
The Take Justice Campaign has come about because of a change in the law on time bar in Scotland for survivors of abuse. This change has given survivors the power to take justice back by securing the trauma support and financial justice deserved. Until recently, the only way that survivors had any chance of justice depended entirely upon others and all too often we were let down.
For a criminal prosecution, survivors relied on the police and the prosecution service. The process was daunting and all too often felt like a struggle to have the police take our complaints seriously.
The Take Justice Campaign is about survivors using the civil courts to obtain the financial justice they deserve. It is about them making financial claims against abusers and winning compensation.
Take Justice is not just about the money. It is about acknowledgement and ensuring survivors can hold our abusers to account in court. It is about forcing our abusers to face up to their wrongs by paying financial compensation.
As a campaign of Wellbeing Scotland the Take Justice Campaign encourages survivors to come forward and Take Justice.
It all starts with a simple and confidential discussion with the Wellbeing Scotland Legal Careline on 0800 001 5029. Or make an enquiry through our web form.
