More than 100 claimants have come forward as part of a Jesus Army compensation scheme in just one year.

In September 2022, a long-awaited compensation scheme was launched by Lime Solicitors for survivors of abuse within the now-defunct religious sect – Jesus Army.

Tuesday (September 26) will mark one year since the launch of the scheme. Within that year, lawyer Malcolm Johnson has represented 140 claimants, with 25 claims settled so far.

Philippa Barnes, media lead of the Jesus Fellowship Survivors Association, said: “This scheme has been the culmination of a long journey for many of us, and I’m incredibly proud of the achievements of the survivors who made this possible.

“Some effort is being made to redress the balance of power in this instance.

“With the scheme now a year old, we are running out of time to ensure those impacted by the Jesus Army, especially those who were children, have the opportunity to apply to the scheme.
