Bahrain has set aside BD10 million to compensate people affected by the unrest.
The Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Ministry will start accepting claims from victims at its headquarters in the Diplomatic Area on Sunday.
The fund is part of the Civil Settlement Initiative, which was earlier proposed by the National Commission tasked with implementing the recommendations of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry.
The beneficiaries will include relatives of people who died during the unrest, expatriate workers and policemen attacked, and anyone whose property was damaged.
"The government has allocated a budget of about BD10m that will be used for this scheme and will include every individual affected because of the unrest last year," said National Commission member Dr Abdulla Al Deerazi.
"The ministry will have its own team of investigators who will evaluate each case and will then come out with a compensation figure, which is up to the applicant to accept or not."
