You may be eligible for special financial assistance from the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal, if you have been a victim of crime within the last 2 years and;
- have suffered a physical injury, or
- think you have suffered a psychological injury, or
- a previous psychological injury has been made worse because of this crime
You might not even know that you have been psychologically affected by a crime.
Being a victim of crime can be traumatic. Often people with psychological injuries as a result of a crime are unsure about the affect but simply don’t feel the same since the crime. This may be a sign of a psychological injury.
Through counselling and other assistance from the Tribunal including special financial assistance you can recover from the crime.
