I know I'm a Nag but did you sign the Petition at

Can You get your Friends to sign?


The Money was given as "additional Compensation"!
It is 500 million Euros Short!
It replaces the Education fund a net gain of 60 million Euros!
Survivors should not have to go cap in hand to their Abusers in time of need /crisis!
As a Trust Fund the Trustees CORI and The Ministry of Education have the right to turn people down who they feel do not fit the criteria the set many survivors are elderly or in dire financial circumstances!

Happy New Year Elizabeth, Survivors being confused about The Statuary Trust Fund was the States very Intention the only people who seem to be for it and benefit from it are those Group leaders (So Called. ) and those who are benefiting from it  they are The So called Services for Survivors who only look after themselves ) They are in Bed with the State and Church.
