In the immediate aftermath of terrorist attacks emergency plans are mobilised and appropriate organisations deployed to address the immediate needs. As normality returns, meeting the longer term needs of the bereaved and survivors is not as well planned. This poject aims to address some of survivors’ longer term needs, often concerned with the context of the event and around acknowledgement and recognition.
