Did you or someone you know live in a Mother and Baby or County Home in Ireland between 1922 & 1998? 

The Irish Government will open a Redress (Payment) Scheme later in 2022 for Mothers and Children who have lived in specific institutions (see below).

The Scheme provides a general payment, which increases with the length of stay at the institution. There is also a provision for counselling for those living in England paid for by the Scheme.

Fréa, a partnership between Irish Community Care based in Liverpool, Irish Community Care Manchester and Leeds Irish Health and Homes is offering support to Irish people living in the North of England to submit their application to the Redress Scheme. 

We can also offer guidance in accessing your records and provide a range of other support.

If you have lived in an institution not covered by the Redress Scheme, we may still be able to support you with queries you have; so please do get in touch.
