For those living in Dublin the event takes place next Saturday 12th March (10am-1pm) in the Gresham hotel. For all of those who have suffered as a result of the institutions as defined in the Ryan Report and other such reports this public meeting by Caranua is important to you, as this organization is charged with administering assistance to those who suffered in such institutions. It was set up by the then Minister Ruairi Quinn and has a budget in excess of 100 million euros which was part of an overall compensation package designed to address education, social and health issues, counselling, mental health and emotional issues.
Many of the former residents are elderly and infirm and many are in substandard accommodation. Caranua offers assistance with some house improvements, personal health issues and educational issues by way of financial support in the payment of bills.
It does not offer direct financial support by way of cash to individuals but is more to assist and help and support with provision of services and goods.
If you know of anybody who was in any of these institutions and could do with assistance and support and the relevant information regarding how to access such supports you should inform them to attend these meetings where relevant information will be supplied and also it’s an opportunity to somewhat socialize and meet others.
See you all there at the Gresham, next Saturday.
It is also important to note at such gatherings that anonymity and boundary and confidentiality are important to us all and above all to treat each other with courtesy and respect.
