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 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
Wednesday 1 August 2018
You can contact us by phone, email or post.
Our office hours are 9.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
