Chair appeals for Mother and Baby Institute victims to come forward

The Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Cathal Mallaghan, is appealing for anyone with personal experience of a Mother and Baby Institute or Magdalene Laundry, to come forward and speak to the Truth Recovery team to help contribute to their inquiry into the institutions.
 
He said:

Were you or one of your family held, placed, or born in a Mother and Baby Institute or Magdalene Laundry here? If so, I would appeal to you to come forward and speak to the Truth Recovery team, the independent body appointed to work with survivors of Mother and Baby Institutes and Magdalene Laundries, and their relatives, to investigate how the institutions operated, and the impact this has had on their lives. 


The Truth Recovery team will be carrying out this work until July 2021 so please get in touch with them by telephone on 03000 200789 or by email at: truthrecovery@nigov.net to contribute to this valuable research.
