Caranua is an independent State body set up to help people who, as children, experienced abuse in institutions in Ireland and have received settlements, Redress Board or Court awards. Caranua offers support, information, advice and advocacy to survivors living in Ireland and in other parts of the world. The support provided is tailored to the needs and circumstances of each person and includes help with health, housing and education issues.
Caranua is hosting three information events in Dublin, Cork and Galway in early 2016. The events will provide information on support services available for survivors of Irish institutional abuse. Other organisations will have information stands at the event.
