Section 2: How much is in the Fund and how will it be used? First Update From the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund(RISF) September 2013

How much is in the fund?  

€110 million has been promised.   By August 2013 €72 million of this had 

been received by RISF.   


When will the full amount be received?  

The money is coming in on a regular basis and it is the responsibility of 

the Minister for Education and Skills to get the balance from the 



When will the full amount be received?  

The money will be used for services to survivors.   It is expected that the 

interest will cover the costs of running the RISF.  This will include staff 

costs and all other organisation and office running costs.   


What can the RISF do for survivors?  

The legislation sets out what assistance RISF can provide to survivors.  

We can either contract with organisations to deliver services to 

survivors or pay grants to survivors so that they can pay for services 

themselves.   In doing this, we must make sure that we don’t duplicate 

what individuals are entitled to receive as citizens.  


Why can't the money just be divided among the survivors? 

Some survivor groups and individual survivors have argued that the 

Fund should be divided among the 15,000 or so survivors eligible for 

assistance from the Fund, but the legislation does not allow for this.
