What if the abuse or assault was not reported to the police?

If the sexual abuse or assault were not reported to the police you would not be able to make a compensation claim.

If there was a delay between the incident taking place and it being reported to the police it is important that there is enough information and evidence for the CICA to consider the claim.

Our experienced advisers will help to establish if there is sufficient reason, and then communicate with the CICA to try to get them to override their normal principle of fully reporting as quickly as possible.
