  • To highlight the ongoing social isolation and marginalisation of service users in their own communities.
  • To promote awareness of the difficulties faced by service users and their families on a daily basis
  • To be proactive in the professional development of all staff and volunteers in dealing with service users.
  • To highlight the intergenerational effect child abuse has on families, particularly survivors of institutional abuse.

My name is Caroline Farry. I am the Managing Director of the Cork Kerry Outreach Care,
Nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to assisting the Magdalene Laundries, Adoptees,
Mother and Baby Homes, County Homes and Boarded Out children, survivors and their families. I
have many years of experience, including personally dealing with issues surrounding the neglect
and suffering of many of these people were subjected to. My background is that I am a survivor of
St. Joseph's Training School, Middletown Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland. I have also been in Foster
Care . I have experienced first hand what our community needs on a day to day and weekly basis as
adults . I have been working with our community for 25yrs as an Outreach Advocate in all areas of
Over the years, I observed a big gap in the market which our community where many are deprived
of the knowledge and/or the education to find out what they are entitled to. Many people in our
community are living in poverty and never received any redress .

The timeframe for assisting the survivors is crucial unless we provide assistance in the future for
some is bleak and continuity of support is paramount. Our project is a lifelong commitment to
support, not just the survivors of today but to continue the programme for others in the future.
