Medomsley Physical Abuse Settlement Scheme – Notice of Extension

The Medomsley Detention Centre Physical Abuse Compensation Scheme has been extended until January 2023, the original closing date was 30th December 2021.

The Physical Abuse Settlement Scheme in place since early 2020 has been successful in enabling compensation of almost 2,000 victims of physical abuse in a fair, proportionate and efficient way.

The government is committed to supporting victims of abuse and the Ministry of Justice is committed to ensuring those who have not yet advanced their claims have the opportunity to do so. Accordingly, the scheme will, with immediate effect, be extended to accept new physical abuse claims on the same terms as claims advanced to date and with limitation amnesties remaining in place.

The compensation scheme is set to be reviewed again in January 2023.
