"The purpose of Time to be Heard (TTBH) was to test the appropriateness and effectiveness of a confidential forum in giving former residents of residential schools and children’s homes the opportunity to recount their experiences in care, especially abusive experiences, to an independent and non-judgemental panel. TTBH was designed to serve both as a means of acknowledging their past and a context in which they could find some release from their suffering. TTBH also offered advice and guidance on the action they could take if they wished to report a criminal case against an individual who had abused them or the institution in which they were cared for. TTBH was modelled on the Confidential Committee of the Irish Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (CICA)." - Page 5.
