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.
