The City of London Corporation has issued a reminder that there is help available to survivors to help them cope with, and recover from, the impact and consequences of a terrorist attack, especially those affected by the 2019 attack at Fishmongers’ Hall. This support includes:

  • Victim Support - conducts terror incident needs assessments (TINA) for each survivor - they refer individuals on to the following services if appropriate
  • Cruse Bereavement Care – provides bereavement support and advice to those victims not currently eligible for support through the homicide service (that is, individuals who are not immediate family members)
  • South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM) – provides clinical mental health assessments and onward referral for those affected by terrorism
  • Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation – facilitates a long-term, peer support network to help victims and survivors of terrorism support each other

Andrew Carter, Chief Officer/ Executive Director, Community & Children’s Services, at the City of London Corporation says:

“Those affected by terrorism directly or indirectly are likely to need information regarding support and pathways at different times.  I am aware that some people directly affected by the Fishmongers’ Hall attack who did not feel the need for support earlier increasingly now do, particularly as the inquest progresses”.
