The Alliance Victim Support Group was established in 1999 to meet the needs of individuals who have been abused as children in Ireland's State-run residential institutions.
The group was founded in the context of the commitments made by the Irish Government to support individuals who were abused in Ireland's institutions, and to address their concerns.
Helping Abuse Survivors to Help Themsleves
The Alliance Victim Support Group is a voluntary organisation. We provide practical, advisory and other services to survivors and their families, helping them cope with the effects of abuse.
We help survivors to obtain any financial assistance and compensation to which survivors are entitled, from statutory bodies.
We also seek to trace and reunite family members, where one or more of the family has been in a residential institution.
Child Abuse Commission & Redress Board
We provide practical advice for those who will be attending. We repsect the confidentiality and privacy of individuals who contact us for advice, and strive to provide a compassionate, one-to-one service.
