 Caroline is a Legal Aid supervising solicitor and a member of the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers. She is also Assistant Coroner in Bradford.


Caroline is an experienced child abuse solicitor having worked in this area since 2000. Her caring and sensitive approach to her clients and determination to achieve justice for survivors has brought closure to many individuals who have been through the most horrendous abuse.


Caroline has been the point of contact for the young offender institution complaints for the team, including Medomsley Detention Centre, Kirk Levington and Eastwood Park. She successfully negotiated the first non-adversarial scheme with the Ministry of Justice to compensate individuals who were mistreated during their sentence and continues to campaign for survivors of abuse.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say how well Caroline Chandler has handled my application with efficiency and sensitivity from start to finish. It has been very difficult to have to rehash the past after all these years, but I do understand what a major job it has been for all concerned.”
