How to apply for compensation if you were a victim of the incident in Reading on 20 June 2020

We offer our deepest sympathy to all those who have been affected by this horrific attack.

If you have been injured in this incident, have lost a close relative or have paid for the funeral of a person who has died you can apply to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) for compensation.

Compensation is payable to applicants who meet the eligibility criteria of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme 2012.

If you have been directly affected by this incident you can find out more about the Scheme and how to apply on GOV.UK. Alternatively, you can call the CICA helpline on 0300 003 3601.
