Collaborative Forum

07/12/2018 - The Collaborative Forum has now met on four occasions and is due to meet again in early December. Minutes of the July, September and October meetings are currently available to view on our website.

We understand that the members of the Forum are working hard to produce a first report with a focus on priority issues around health and well being supports, identity and memorialisation.

Minister Zappone would like to thank the Forum Members for their dedication and the hard work they have shown in 2018 and she looks forward to further engagement with the Forum in 2019.

Tuam Update
The Tuam Inter Departmental Group (IDG) met at Miesian Plaza late last month to discuss the implementation of the Government’s programme of action. The main focus of the meeting was around the drafting of new legislation which will be needed to provide specific lawful authority for the proposed course of action at the site at Tuam.
A dedicated team is currently being assembled at Miesian Plaza to focus on the drafting and implementation of this legislation. The IDG will meet again early in the New Year.
