Methodology to inform the next stage

Informing the next stage of inquiry or investigation

The Truth Recovery Panel is well aware of the strength of feeling among many families who have campaigned for justice for years. More recently, other families have also come forward to pursue justice. 

During the next three months together we will establish the questions that you want answered by a future inquiry or investigation. Your participation will also help to determine what form the inquiry or investigation should take.

Due to COVID restrictions, we will gather this information in writing, by telephone or video call – either personally or in groups.

In writing

You must have completed and returned your Register of Interest Form before you download the questionnaire: Registering your interest online

Once you have completed and returned your ‘Register of Interest’ then please fill in the Questionnaire which can be sent to you by email or by post.

This Questionnaire can be sent by email to you as a PDF document OR Word Document or we can post a printed version to you. Please email us at truthrecovery.mbi-magdalene@nigov.net  to let us know which you would prefer or telephone us on the number below.

Return address for posting:- Truth Recovery Panel, 1st Floor MDEC, Glendermott Road, BT47 6SB

By telephone or video call

You can share information privately, by video call or telephone, or as part of a group on a video call. We will contact you to agree a time and date for the call, whether by telephone or ZOOM.

Should you have a concern or question about sharing experiences and views we will ensure that one of the research team will discuss this with you.

Your views

What you tell us will remain confidential but will be central to the Panel’s findings and report, establishing the key priorities and recommendations for the next stage of investigation or inquiry.

The report will then be presented to the Northern Ireland Executive and published on our independent web-site: www.truthrecoverystrategy.com
