While the report was launched last Friday the 9th October, my Department is very conscious that survivors will continue to need support into the future.
In July 2019, two facilitators employed by the Department published a report on the outcomes of their initial consultations with survivors. It was intended that the consultation would set out the themes and issues to be addressed by a survivor led consultation group. Facilitators are continuing to work with a group of survivors to identify what their needs are and to see how mainstream services should be configured to address those needs. The publication of this report is a welcome addition to the body of knowledge on the long term needs of survivors.
