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.
