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!

couldn't even get driving lessons for a family member out of that Education Fund.   or funding for my Niece , phoned many times at my expense  no joy there Christine Buckley should not have been on that board .  Who are the 4 EX survivors they are putting on the board of The Statuary Trust Fund?????????  The  Survivors must have their democratic right to be informed about this and have a VOTE . although That Statuary Trust Fund IS A BIG FAT CON

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.

Hi Elizabeth I agree it's the Government who need to address this. I believe they have set up Caranua as a business appointing CEO Mary Higgins. I have question this and was blank ed by Mary Higgins. The staff are clueless just doing what there told. Claire Daly has been the only one to respond although R. QUINN OFFICE did reply. Caranua has 8 board members for what I don't know and 8 staff who man phones etc. The whole set up is a joke and yes insulting to us. We need to expose the corruption and its is I believe all the way up to the new Minister of education. I have a sister who used to live in Southampton Take care Siobhan

Hi Elizabeth and I can tell you a select few left with big smiles on their faces having been given the VIP treatment by Higgins.  When I went to complain to one of the smiling faces I was told Higgins was great wish I could have said the same.  I know what is going on but can't prove it and don't want to mention names on here. xx
