How many people can apply?
To be eligible to apply to Caranua, a person must have spent time in an institution as a child, and received an award through settlement, Court or the Residential Institutions Redress Board. Our Application Form Part 1 allows us to check whether someone can apply. Once we receive the form, we usually do this in ten working days. The number of Part 1 applications received up to the 30th of April is 6,540. Of these 5,977 survivors have been deemed eligible to apply.
Current Status of Applications
After an applicant is deemed eligible to apply, we ask them for identification documents. Once their identification documents are verified, the next step is that they are allocated an Application Advisor, who will work with them on their application for services.
As of the 30th of April, there were no survivors who have yet to receive services, who are waiting to be assigned an Advisor. There are currently almost 2,000 survivors working with an Advisor, most of whom are first time applicants. There is no-one who has already received services and who has submitted a reapplication, who is waiting to be assigned an Application Advisor.
