Former NSW state wards need to contact lawyer Peter Kelso now

The NSW government has at last opened its doors (and its cheque book) for people abused as children when they were state wards. If you were in a children’s home anywhere in NSW and/or placed in foster care Kelso Lawyers want to hear from you now. Please come forward if you were sexually and/or physically abused in Children’s Homes or by foster carers. You may have been in a state run Home like Parramatta Girls, Hay Institute, Dharruk Boys, Berry Training Farm, Royleston Boys, Ormond Training School, Bidura Children’s, Tamworth Boys or the like. Or you may have been in church run homes like Gill Memorial Boys’ Home, Bexley Boys’ Home, St Vincent’s Westmead, Croagh Patrick Orange, North Coast Children’s, Bethcar and others. Peter Kelso can negotiate a compensation settlement for you or take your case to court with no risk to yourself. Read this open letter from Peter and complete the website enquiry form or just phone up during week days.
