Criminal Justice Assistance Reimbursement Scheme

If you lost property or income because you helped the police, you may be able to apply to this scheme for a payment to cover your loss. Your loss must have been the direct result of criminal victimisation. The case you helped with must be punishable by imprisonment.

The scheme is one of last resort. This means that there can’t be any other help you can get to cover your loss.

Victims will normally be told about the scheme by the police.
