Manchester terrorist attack

How to apply for compensation if you were a victim of the terrorist attack in Manchester on 22 May 2017


Applications can be made to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012, by those victims injured, or the families of those killed in the attack.

If you have been bereaved or suffered a personal injury as a result of this incident you can find out more about applying. Alternatively, you can call the CICA helpline on 0300 003 3601.

You do not need a paid representative, such as a solicitor or claims management company, to apply to CICA for compensation. Our Guide provides information about free independent advice that may be available from local support services or other charitable organisations.
