The Jesus Fellowship Redress Scheme
For former members of the Jesus Fellowship Church (also known as the Jesus Army)

The Jesus Fellowship Redress Scheme offers redress to those who have suffered harm, abuse and/or adverse experiences within the Jesus Fellowship community. It also provides a process for employment, pension, national insurance and retirement claims.

The Jesus Fellowship Redress Scheme has been specifically designed to give survivors and applicants an effective means for swift and compassionate settlement, without having to go through the courts. It ensures the compensation available goes to survivors and applicants, rather than being eroded by legal fees. It also means no survivor or applicant, who claims through the Scheme, will have to re-state their experience in court.

The Jesus Fellowship Redress Scheme is being delivered in conjunction with our solicitors, Clyde & Co. All claims will be reviewed by them, and outcomes decided in conjunction with the Jesus Fellowship Community Trust Trustees overseeing the closure of the Trust.

Abuse survivors have until 31st December 2023 to apply to the compensation scheme.

Individual Redress Payment

If you meet the criteria for the Individual Redress Payment Scheme, you may be entitled to:

  • An award of compensation for the harm or injury suffered, aligned with Common Law Compensation Awards;
  • A written apology acknowledging what has happened to you, providing acceptance of responsibility and an assurance that lessons of the past have been learnt and shared with relevant authorities;
  • An invitation to meet with a Trustee of the Trust to share your story, if you so wish;
  • Provision towards the cost of solicitor fees.

Other Financial Redress

The Other Claims Scheme will address all legal claims relating to Employment, National Insurance, Pensions and Retirement, that meet the criteria below.

Due to the specific nature of these types of claims, appropriate outcomes will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


In most cases we can offer you a No Win, No Fee Agreement. This means that you will not have to pay us unless we are successful in your claim.

If your claim is unsuccessful, we simply do not get paid
