Update 2nd August 2018
On 31st May 2018, the Board of Caranua announced that survivors who may be eligible to apply for funding for services must return their application form to Caranua by Wednesday 1st August 2018 to ensure that their application can be processed. This decision was made by considering the number of survivors who are currently working with Caranua, the amount remaining in the fund and the need to ensure there is sufficient funding available for those who have applied.
As we have now passed this deadline Caranua will no longer be accepting new or repeat applications. Although Caranua cannot provide you with financial supports, we may be able to connect you with organisations that may be able to help you now or in the longer term. If you are interested in this type of support please call us by phone, email or post. Our office hours are 9.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
