Solicitor’s Referral Scheme (ACAL Panel)

The ACAL Panel is not part of the membership, but rather a method of selecting solicitors for client referrals. It is an effective method of "signposting" clients to solicitors who have been trained in the specialism of child abuse compensation cases and demonstrated that they satisfy certain criteria.

To join the list one must satisfy certain criteria. To find out more about the criteria please contact us. Also see the preamble to the application form and our training page, If the application is successful, one must pay a separate fee and complete regular training.

Please fill in an application form online.  The fee is £500 per year per person. The ACAL panel operates similarly to the A.V.M.A. panel.

Our criteria can be obtained by contacting us to request a copy.

Membership of the panel/ACAL begins on the 1st March and ends on the 28th February. The Executive Committee will give consideration to allowing a person membership at a reduced fee, or an extension of membership, if they apply in the middle of the year.

We have devised an application form, which can be filled in online.
