Charity for victims

Post  cyfrifia on Wed May 24, 2017 10:39 am

It's so helpful and generous of people to donate to funds to help victims of the Manchester bombing and their families.

News stories of the past show some victims of the 7/7 bombings waited many years for criminal injuries compensation. It doesn't seem right that those who have lost children etc should be depending on charity to pay for funerals and practical things that need doing. What is the setup for helping victims of terrorist attacks and their families? It looks a bit uncertain.

Fortunately I wouldn't know. Given that all governments are clearly aware that 10% of the population will, by one fate or another, not make it through to middle-age it is conceivable that very little is done in the early stages by way of compensations or assistance - other than that already available through the hardship funds of the DHSS. It's not a question I have come across -. Rolling Eyes
