National Confidential Forum as a Mode of Acknowledgement and Apology
The key functions of the NCF are to receive and listen in private, to the experiences of adults placed in institutional care as children and to offer acknowledgment of those experiences; to contribute to the prevention of abuse of children placed in institutional care in the future by making proposals to inform policy and practice based on the experiences recounted in hearings of the NCF; and to signpost participants to services which can offer support, advocacy, advice and information before during and after testimony is given.
