Pakistan Floods Appeal
how you can help
We deal with appeals against review decisions of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), on claims for compensation made on or after 1 April 1996, under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme.
We have approximately 70 part-time Tribunal Judges and Members who are qualified to decide criminal injury compensation appeals. They are appointed by the Lord Chancellor and include people with legal and medical qualifications, and lay people from diverse backgrounds.
The Tribunal is supported by administrative staff based in Glasgow and London. Appeals are processed in Glasgow. The judicial lead for Criminal Injury Compensation cases (the Principal Judge), and his support team, is based in London.
Our aim is to enable victims of violent crime to have their appeals decided sensitively fairly and independently in accordance with the Scheme.
