Consultation with survivors of abuse in children’s residential institutions
The Irish government’s Department of Education and Skills is now conducting a survey about ‘Consultation with survivors of abuse in children’s residential institutions.’
The Department states that a number of survivors abuse in children’s residential institutions have sought the holding of a series of meetings which would serve as a forum for former residents and others with close personal involvement to reflect on their experiences, the State’s response to the issue of institutional abuse and to make any recommendations they wish to make.
The Department would like to get the views of survivors on how that consultation process should proceed. To give your views, a short survey form can be accessed
There is also a freephone service 1800911201 or 08000114697 which is operated by Barnardos.
It will run from Thursday 31 May until Wednesday the 20 June from Monday to Friday (excluding the June Bank Holiday) between the hours of 1pm to 5pm where your verbal responses to the survey will be recorded.
