Getting emotional and practical support
Being a victim of a terrorist attack is traumatic, and you may need support for months or years after the incident. Help is always available. You can get specialist emotional and practical support directly after an attack or at any point in your recovery journey.
Organisations that can help
The Home Office funds 3 organisations as part of a victim and survivor pathway to help victims and survivors cope with, and recover from, the impact of a terrorist attack.
- Victim Support – conducts terror incident needs assessments for each victim and survivor. They can refer you to other services if appropriate.
- South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust – provides clinical mental health assessments and referrals for those affected by terrorism.
- Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation – offers a long-term peer network to help victims and survivors of terrorism support each other.
