About the Trust

Welcome to the vCJD trust website. This site provides information about the compensation scheme set up to provide compensation to victims of variant Cruetzfeldt Jakob Disease (vCJD) and their families.

The Trustees of the scheme recognise that money will never turn back the clock or compensate for the loss of a loved one to vCJD, but we hope that it will go some way towards easing the trauma and tragedy suffered by victims and their families. Payments made whilst the victim is still alive may also go some way towards alleviating their suffering.

All enquiries to the Trustees should be made to Fieldfisher and directed for the attention of Edwina Rawson or Jonathan Zimmern on 0207 861 4000. The Trustees encourage families who want to make a claim for compensation to contact them direct, via Fieldfisher.
