to Watch it?
To Read and Sign the Petition for a Permanent Resolution to the Dilemma and Abuse Caranua has Caused!
what a load of crap from elton john look alike mary higgans she lied about every thing that was put to her .i still want caranua
closed as soon as possible sack mary higgans and her staff and set up a new organision till this happens nothing will change
for us . james fox.
I'm sure that Mary Higgins is aware of who I am?
I find it difficult to understand why she hasn;t asked me what Survivors want or need!
I have been listening for 7 years to Survivors without a Personal Axe to Grind
As I'm NOT a Survivor!
Very interesting indeed. They were All caught out on numerous occasions doing things they should NOT be doing! One seems to be on a different planet than the next! The Board is certainly NOT acting properly making decisions by themselves, you know i wonder if Mary Higgins is the Main problem here? who in my Opinion from what i can see, is making ALL the decisions herself, and NOT allowing the Board to have Any input in the decision making!
Saying she sent out letters to Survivors telling them their case was closed, they had got everything they had asked for is NOT correct. She also said this could be appealed, which again is NOT correct.
I had an email from her stating my case was closed, with NO mention of Appeal or anything of the sort, so i don't know where all these Lies are coming from. It seems to me that Mary Higgins IS the Dictator in this case, and her word is final! I personally do NOT think she is working within the remit of the Legislation, but making the decisions on her own head, and the Board has absolutely NO say good, bad or Indifferent in Any matter.
I somehow do not think we have heard the end of this Saga yet, i think there will be More Inconsistencies revealed into the future. A LOT more!
Section 25 of the Statutory Trust Fund Act Requires that public authorities, as defined in s.2, shall, where practicable, coordinate their functions with those of the Board. When requested to do so by the Board, the local authority shall authorise an employee to be a liaison officer so as to advise former residents on the publicly available services provided by the authority, on request by the Board to advise the Board of these services, and liaise with the Board in relation to any specific application which has been received by the Board.
Caranua are pretty thin on Advocacy!
The Act Specifies that EVERY Local Authority have a Named Liaison Officer sympathetic to the needs of Former Residents of the Industrial Schools that will progress the needs of Former Residents at the Behest of the Board!
They Define a Local Authority as
a local authority, within the meaning of the Local Government Act 2001;
Why is Mary Higginss blaming County Managers for Breaking the Law?
When shee is supposed to be getting the most for Survivors?
In cases of severe illness being told that 6 months of waiting on a list is very heartless. It leaves the surviver alone without funds to sort needs out themselves.A wheelchair is vital and cant wait for them to get around to dealing with the problem. So what to do !!!!!!!!!!.
