The Harm’s Way Payment
Payment of between £1,000 and £10,000 if you lived in fear of being abused, neglected or suffering cruelty while living in a Lambeth children’s home (including Shirley Oaks).
The amount of payment depends on how long you lived at the children’s home.
If you lived in one of the four homes for children with disabilities, you will get a Harm’s Way payment of £10,000 no matter how long you spent there:
• Ivy House
• Chestnut Road
• Monkton Street
• Warham Road
If you’re eligible, you can apply for both the Harm’s Way Payment and Individual Redress Payment. When you submit your application Lambeth’s Redress Scheme will pay your Harm’s Way Payment first.
