Survivors of abuse in industrial schools are getting grants of around €14,000 on average to renovate their homes under a state-run scheme.
The grants cover house extensions, window replacements, insulation and adapting rooms for wheelchairs.
The scheme, which is run by state agency Caranua, is open to around 15,000 abuse survivors who have already been granted compensation for the physical and sexual abuse they suffered in industrial schools.
