The I Newspaper: “Survivors of Ireland’s notorious homes for ‘fallen women’ where babies were ‘left to die’ speak out”

Catch IWSSN today on pg 26 in The i Newspaper, where our work in supporting the Irish investigation into Mother-and-Baby Homes is covered. Powerfully, clients of ours who are survivors of these homes, speak out about their experiences and the ordeals they suffered from as a result of the Mother-and-Baby Homes.

Two years ago this month, a local historian made a shocking discovery in Tuam, Ireland. In a gravesite near a Mother-and-Baby Home where unmarried women were sent to give birth, the remains of 800 babies were found in a septic tank. This sparked outrage in Ireland and across the world, and an independent investigation was launched to look into what took place at these homes, where over 35,000 women were thought to have been sent.

This article marks this anniversary and appeals to those who have information or experience relating to these homes, to come forward and give evidence confidentially. Please contact us on 0207 267 9997 to find out more.
