Redress scheme begins for Northern Ireland abuse victims and survivors

The long awaited redress scheme for victims and survivors of historical institutional abuse in Northern Ireland has opened.

Claire McKeegan of Phoenix Law, a long term advocate for the rights of those who suffered, says: “Anyone who was a resident in an institution in Northern Ireland between 1922 and 1995 and suffered, or witnessed abuse, can apply to the redress board.”

“Those who were sent to Australia under the child migrant programme may also be eligible. So too could the relatives of those who have already died.”

Phoenix Law will provide confidential and free help and guidance for anyone wishing to apply.
