Dear Survivors – July update on our work

Updated July 2019

Dear Survivors,

As you know Caranua has almost finished its work with Survivors as the fund allocated to provide financial supports has nearly come to an end.

The Board of Caranua has written to the Minister for Education & Skills, Mr Joe McHugh to let him know that our final date for making payments for funding supports to Survivors will be in August 2019.

Caranua’s timelines and plans are based on receiving the outstanding contribution to the fund in a timely manner. We are currently working with 1,062 survivors on their applications for funding supports. To make sure we manage the fair and equal distribution of the remaining fund, we are taking a staggered approach with survivors in relation to timelines for the receipt of their paperwork and the completion process.

Our Application Advisor team have spoken with Survivors and given them timelines for the final date for the receipt of their paperwork.  To try and give all eligible Survivors a chance to access the fund we are also trying again to contact Survivors with open applications who have received zero or small amounts of funding supports to encourage them to progress their application as they will need a longer timeline and additional support.

The length of the timeline given to a Survivor to complete his or her application depended on a number of things for example:

  • How long their application been open with Caranua?
  • The funding supports received to date?
  • The ability of the individual survivor to manage their application process

If you have any questions about this information please do not hesitate to contact Caranua by calling the Freephone number 1800 212 477, if you cannot get through please leave a message and one of our team will call you back.  You can also write to us at Caranua, PO Box 12477, Dublin 1.

Kind regards,

Rachel Downes, CEO
