Nice: Survivors Assistance Network Support for Victims of Terror Attack, 14th July, Bastille Day
July 15, 2016 | Nick Taylor
The 14th July 2016 brought very distressing news and images from Nice. Whilst the circumstances and scale of the incident are still being assessed, it is clear that there have been a large number of fatalities and many more injured. The thoughts of everyone at the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace are with those affected by the incident.
If you are a UK national who has been affected by the terror attack in Nice (or any other act of terrorism), whether you have been bereaved, injured or a witness, the Survivors Assistance Network (SAN) at the Foundation is available to offer you practical and emotional support to ensure you get access to the help you need. This is a free and confidential service and is available immediately after an incident but also offers continued support in the medium to longer term.
You can contact the SAN Team on:
SAN@foundation4peace.org.uk or call
01925 581 240
(Please note: SAN does not offer a 24/7 response, however emails and telephone messages will be followed up the next working day)
What to expect:
A SAN case worker will contact you by email or phone to introduce themselves and explain more about the help offered by SAN.
An appointment will be made at a place and time of your convenience to discuss and assess your needs in consultation with our mental health specialist.
We will work with you to agree the next steps to help you and develop a tailored care plan. This may include advocating on your behalf with statutory and non-statutory bodies; liaison with official bodies; identifying local support services; or identifying psychological interventions to help you manage your trauma.
We will also agree any practical help that might help, for example accessing benefits due to illness and injury as a result of the incident; support with criminal justice processes and inquests; and managing the media.
