You may be able to claim compensation for your injuries or losses. This compensation could come from a number of sources.
A child victim of crime may apply for compensation like any other victim of crime who has suffered an injury.
It is important for you to keep all of the police reports and medical reports and any receipts for expenses that result from the crime. It is also important that you report the offence in a reasonable time, provide the police with any information they need so that they can investigate the crime or prosecute the offender, and cooperate as much as you can with the investigation and prosecution.
Each of the types of compensation has its own application process. The compensation you may be paid by one source may reduce any compensation payable by another source.
