It Is Interesting As Well As Other Things How Much Documentation (ID) They Require Before They Accept Their Victims Exist  ...  Of Course They Have Spent A Long Time Busily Destroying Their Victims Records (Files)!!

I also wish to raise the question of the bureaucracy this legislation will entail. Would it be possible to put in place a system similar to the HAA positive action medical cards provided to hepatitis C sufferers to provide access to health services? People should be considered according to the quantum of money they received from the redress board and an appropriate percentage could be given to them. I note all the names, addresses and contact numbers are available and a card could be used to allocate medical care, health, housing applications or whatever. Credits on such a card could be used by survivors for to access such funds for housing, were they in need of an extension or if they needed to build a flat or toilet downstairs in their houses. I propose a mechanism whereby people receive funds directly and rapidly to be used for their best benefit. Such amendments must be considered, rather than people being obliged to apply, make applications and so on, in what can be extremely difficult and bureaucratic procedures, to gain access to redress from that perspective.

I Am Sure Many People Think It Strange To Have To Apply For Help / Compensation / Justice / Etc

Much of the things being offered to Survivors through this fund are already available to Survivors through the Welfare system already, so indeed Jack why do we need to Apply again for help. My dentist told me that their was no need for me to apply through any fund as the Health service in Ireland already have an exceptional circumstances application to have all necessary dental work done through my medical card. I can apply for eye tests every two year and receive two pair of glassed. I can apply for home help if I am of senior age or disabled, I can apply for a building grant to have my home made accessible, I can apply for a wet room to replace a bathroom, I can also apply for a back to further education grant as an adult over 21 year of age if I am eligible, which most survivors would be eligible. This is my reason for thing the whole fund is a scam!

Yes Indeed Barbara. You Would Think The 'Opposition' Would Have Pointed That Out At The Very Start And The Obvious Unnecessary Costs!  And Why Do We Need Advisors?  To Advise What Exactly?  I Would Have Thought We Need Friends Who Are Helpers. Helpers Who Help Us Get Our Needs Met ASP . And Needs Change Which Needs To Be Considered Now.
