VICTIMS of crime across the north-east who find themselves facing hardship are being urged to seek up to £3000 in support.
The Victims’ Fund is open to people affected by crime across Scotland, who are in urgent need of financial help as a result of what they have experienced. This may be especially relevant during the Covid-19 pandemic.
People can access assistance worth up to £3000, for a wide range of goods and services where they have no other access to funds.
Administered by Victim Support Scotland, is open to any victim of crime who is resident in Scotland and currently accessing victim and other support services. It is also available for people who live outside Scotland who have been bereaved by a crime that has occurred within Scotland.
To be eligible, applicants must also have an urgent identified need and have reported the crime to the police or other appropriate body
The Victims’ Fund is available for specific costs and items in the aftermath of a crime. It is not a compensation fund.
