Survivors Against Terror
Survivors report: ‘Broken’ terror compensation scheme
Survivors of terror attacks have given a damning verdict on the UK’s terror compensation system in a new report by Survivors Against Terror (SAT) – leading to calls for the system to be replaced.
More than 130 survivors from 11 different terror attacks responded to a SAT survey (conducted by research company Kantar) on the Government’s Criminal Injuries and Compensation Authority (CICA).
A staggeringly low 7% of survivors felt that CICA was sympathetic to their needs, whereas 72% said that they were not.
68% felt that the process was unfair and unreasonable, only 9% felt the opposite. More than half said they were unable to speak to someone from CICA for help
