The Troubles Permanent Disablement Scheme opened in August 2021 and is being delivered by the Northern Ireland Executive. The scheme provides acknowledgement and support to people who were injured in a Troubles-related incident throughout the UK between 1966 and 2010 and living with permanent disablement as a result.

UK citizens, people from Northern Ireland or Crown Servants injured in a relevant incident in Europe will be eligible to apply.

In addition, the Home Office’s Victims of Terrorism Unit ensures that victims of terrorism in Great Britain receive effective, comprehensive and coordinated support. Further details on the range of support available can be found at victimsofterrorism.campaign.gov.uk.

The Home Secretary has committed to an internal review, which will assess the wider support package available to victims of terrorism and will provide recommendations.
