The Different Types Of Redress

There are several types of redress you may be entitled to.

Individual Redress Payment

Payment up to £125,000 if you were abused or were inflicted with psychological injury as a child while you lived in or visited a Lambeth children’s home (including those at Shirley Oaks) or attended Shirley Oaks Primary School.

The amount of payment depends on:

• how severe the abuse was
• the harm it caused you
• whether you need to pay for any recommended medical or psychological treatment
• whether you need to pay for things like travelling to a medical assessment when making your application


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.
