Victim of Terrorism: how do I get help?

If you’re worried someone might see you have been on this page, find out how to stay safe online here.

Terrorist attacks are unpredictable and are designed to cause mass fear and terror. Because of this, if you have been affected by terrorism, coming to terms with the physical and/or emotional impact of the incident can be complex and lengthy. You can access general emotional and practical support straight after an incident. And you may also be able to claim compensation if you’ve been the victim of a terrorist attack abroad.
