The Clann Project recommendations on the Government’s proposed ‘Restorative Recognition Scheme’ are informed by the witness statements and other evidence gathered and are supported the Clann Project’s Constitutional and human rights analysis of the State’s legal obligations. They are also guided by our experience over the past two decades in assisting adopted people, survivors, natural parents and family members. Our recommendations are further guided by our experience in making recommendations on and engaging with the Government’s ‘Ex Gratia’ Restorative Justice Scheme for Magdalene survivors (see appendices 1 and 2 below). These recommendations are also consistent with and should be read alongside the Recommendations of the Collaborative Forum of Former Residents of Mother and Baby Homes.
