The table below shows the proportion of applications received since 2010-11 which were decided (at first decision) within 12 months of submission.

If an applicant is dissatisfied with their first decision, they have the right to request that this is reviewed. If they remain dissatisfied following review, they can appeal to the independent First-tier Tribunal (Criminal Injuries Compensation).
