Jersey: Abuse victims may claim compensation

People who say they were abused at the former Jersey children’s home, Haut de la Garenne, could seek compensation from the Jersey government.

A legal team set up by Havant firm Dyer, Burdett and Company  is appealing for victims to come forward with Jersey advocates Ozanne.

Two years ago, DBC reached an out-of-court settlement of more than £300,000 for nine men who were abused in Berkshire Council-run Green Field House children’s home between 1964 and 1970.

The Berkshire home was then managed by the late Don Prescott, who is alleged to have abused the boys and rented them to other paedophiles.

Police are continuing their search of the site of the former Haut de la Garenne home in St Martin, Jersey, as part of their inquiry into historic abuse.  More than 160 people have given information on alleged abuse at the home, which closed in 1986.
