Justice Secretary announces victim compensation scheme review, scraps unfair rule

 

Ministers are to launch review of Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme to ensure more victims get the right compensation.

 

-- Government to abolish rule which denied compensation for some victims of violent crime

 

-- First ever cross-government Victims Strategy to be unveiled on 10 September

 

The Justice Secretary has today announced a full review of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme to ensure it reflects the changing nature of crime and can better support victims. The plans are set out in the first ever cross-government Victims Strategy, which will be launched tomorrow (10 September). The strategy will coordinate the already extensive government support for victims of crime to focus support and services around the individual.

 

Ministers have ordered this review of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (CICS) to improve access to compensation, and to consider how the scheme might better serve victims - especially victims of child sexual abuse and terrorism. The review will begin immediately and is expected to report in 2019 with recommendations for reform.
