VC launches review into criminal injuries compensation

This week the Victims’ Commissioner launched a new review into criminal injuries compensation. The review will look at victims’ whole experiences of claiming criminal injuries compensation, including their experience of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, and their wider experience of seeking and receiving advice and support in making their applications. The review will aim to identify any particular frustrations or blockages in the system, and whether there are any aspects which work well.

If you have applied for criminal injuries compensation for yourself, or on behalf of a friend or relative, we would love to hear from you. Please click here to share your views and experiences in our victims’ survey.
