Media Release, 7 April 2020

Today is hard day for Survivors of institutional abuse, their families and their supporters.

2020 Welcome from CEO Clare Leaney

As we begin this next decade working with and on behalf of institutional abuse survivors, it’s important to take a moment and reflect on some of our successes and share some of our ideas for 2020 and into the future.

This surge funding has meant that 2020 has opened with a huge leap forward in Foundation activity, with some amazing service delivery results up to 30th December 2019 that further support our calls for additional funding.
