This is a digital guide for people who have applied, or are thinking of applying, for compensation under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012 (we call this ‘the Scheme’). This guide is divided into helpful topics such as the eligibility rules, how to make an application, your responsibilities and how we will handle your claim.
The Scheme applies to all applications received on or after 27 November 2012. This guide will also link to the relevant sections of the Scheme or other organisations’ websites where appropriate.
The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme is a government funded scheme designed to compensate blameless victims of violent crime in Great Britain.
We, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), administer the Scheme and decide all claims.
The rules of the Scheme and the value of the payments awarded are set by Parliament and are calculated by reference to a tariff of injuries.
Although the size of the award varies to reflect the seriousness of the injury, we know that it will never fully compensate you for what you have suffered or lost - it is just society’s way of recognising that you have been a victim.
You do not need a paid representative such as a solicitor or claims management company to apply for compensation.
