Mother & Baby Homes Redress Scheme

Children's Minister Roderic O'Gorman to bring details of a redress scheme for mother and baby home survivors to Cabinet any day now.

25 academics and legal experts found that residents of mother and baby homes were subjected to involuntary detention, forced labour and illegal adoption, noting that the "Commission used a narrow account of Irish legal history to excuse the abuses detailed across the Report".

The Compensation/Redress Scheme to be set up by the Government is likely to compensate the surviving mothers for the pain and suffering they endured whilst residing in the homes but it is also likely that the children born in such homes may also be eligible for compensation.


It would appear that survivors that are now resident outside of Ireland may well be eligible for compensation such as persons residing in Britain, America and other countries.
