    Mother and Baby Homes Payment Scheme details

    What happens now?

    If you have been in contact with us previously regarding an application for the mother and baby homes payment scheme, you will have received our recent newsletter outlining the next steps. We intend to meet with our clients immediately after the scheme opens. We will go through the application process with you, advise you on your eligibility and entitlement, complete your application form and arrange to submit it without delay. We have travelled to various locations nationwide to meet those for whom it is not practical to travel to our offices. We have also conducted many meetings remotely. We continue to offer telephone appointments to prepare and finalise your application. Please contact us at 01-5313800 or by email at [email protected].

    If you have not contacted us previously, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please submit your details through the contact form on this page or by telephoning us at 01-5313800. Please bear with us while we respond to each enquiry.

    Are there fees involved?

    Coleman Legal LLP will never seek to recover any fees from the redress you receive.

    What if I am currently eligible to apply to the scheme?

    If you are not currently eligible to apply to the mother and baby homes payment scheme, either because you resided in a listed institution for less than 180 days as a former child resident or because you resided in a non-listed institution, we would still welcome your contact. Coleman Legal LLP will continue to fight for justice for former child residents currently excluded from the scheme.
