In relation to Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries, the Working Group has agreed the initial institutions to be included in the review and the timespan to be covered.
Due to the current limited evidence about the operation of both institutions, researchers from Queen’s University Belfast and the Ulster University have been commissioned to determine what evidence exists. You can find more about that research using the links on the website.
Based on the research findings, the group will develop recommendations on the appropriate way forward for each institution for Executive approval.
Information about the work of the group relating to Historical Clerical Child Abuse will be made available shortly.
