Information you need to provide

We know that talking or writing about your experiences can be difficult. However, we need to know what happened to you so that we can:

  • process your application
  • make sure you get the right amount of compensation

You will need to give us your details, and as much information as you can remember. This includes:

  • the name of the children’s home or homes that you lived in or visited
  • when you stayed there or visited
  • the names of any alleged abusers
  • when the abuse happened
  • the names of any people who saw what happened to you

There are guidance notes on the application form to help you.
