The Shame of Ireland
Who can apply for the fund?
Only people who have received awards through the Redress Board or
equivalent court awards can apply to RISF.
What about children of survivors?
As the legislation stands children of survivors are not eligible to apply.
The Minister has given a commitment that he will review the eligibility
criteria in 2015.
How do people apply?
We are not ready to take applications yet. As soon as the terms of the
scheme are finalised we will let all survivors know by contacting anyone
on our mailing list, working with existing survivors and other welfare
groups and using the media in Ireland, UK and other parts of the world,
particularly local newspapers and radio stations.
If you think you are eligible for the scheme, please register with us now
and we will contact you to let you know when we are inviting
