The needs of survivors are at the heart of everything that Caranua does

Survivors are entitled to compassion, respect and dignity

Caranua will always be open and fair in every way

Caranua is here to improve the lives of survivors of institutional abuse. We want to make a real difference to your life.
If you are a relative or friend of a survivor and want to help them with their application or provide them with more information, then this section will help you.
If you are a professional working with a survivor, or are a service provider and Caranua is paying for services or equipment from you on behalf of a survivor, this section will be helpful.

Caranua was established to provide funding for support services that are relevant to the needs of survivors who, as children, experienced abuse in residential institutions in Ireland. Now, as the limited Fund that was provided to support survivors decreases, the work that Caranua was established to carry out is nearly complete.

If you spent time in a residential institution as a child and received an award through settlement, Court or the Redress Board you may be eligible to apply to Caranua. If you have not already applied and need our support please apply by
