If you’ve been the victim of a violent hate or blameless crime you could be entitled to money to aid your recovery / mental well being. If your attacker is in a poor financial situation, or has since passed away, the CICA fund could be particularly beneficial. There are specialist legal representatives who deal only with cases such as these; one of which we’re proud to work with.

What is CICA?

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is a government funded programme that compensates blameless victims of violent crime. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), administer the Scheme & determine the value of a claim; using UK Parliament guidelines. Victims of historic sexual abuse may also be entitled to support; something we help sign post people to as well.

If you have been a blameless victim of a crime you can use the below form to receive further information / start the process to claim. Queries get forwarded to one of our partners: a third party specialist firm who are registered with the relevant legal governing bodies. Feel free to include your phone number for a call back – otherwise, you’ll receive an email. Data is stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
