Caranua launches redesigned website

Caranua launched an updated version of the website on 22 September 2014.

Caranua is delighted to launch its redesigned website today, Monday 22nd September.

“The new site is part of our overall strategy to be accessible and responsive to the needs of individual survivors, and to provide  information on the issue of institutional abuse and its effects”  says Caranua CEO, Mary Higgins.

She also said that “we will add to the material on the site as time goes on and in the coming months will launch our information on our application process in other formats such as video and audiobook. We are determined to be open and accountable and reports on our progress in meeting survivor needs, and processing applications will be continuously updated, as will our Board minutes and reports on Parliamentary Questions relating to Caranua. We will continue to revisit the website to make it better for people who use it.”

Caranua is an independent State body that supports survivors of institutional abuse by helping with their health, housing and education needs. Caranua opened for applications on the 6th January 2014 and has so far received over 3,000 applications and paid out over €2 million.

The website redesign was done by Chris Fildes and Danny Lane at Fruit Design.
