Legal advice and support

The Historical Institutional Abuse (HIA) Redress Board understands that making an application for compensation may be  difficult for you. To assist with making this process easier, we will pay all costs and expenses that are reasonably incurred should you decide to instruct a solicitor. 

You will not be required to make any advance payment to your solicitor. The Redress Board will pay these costs and expenses directly to your solicitor on your behalf.

Further details on how the Redress Board will deal with costs and expenses is set out in the costs and expenses protocol.
