This site was created by LL.M. students in the Human Rights Law Clinic at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, NUI Galway, in collaboration with Article Eight Advocacy. It aims to assist survivors of Mother and Baby Homes in using data protection law to access their personal information, and to provide background information which may be of interest to a wider audience.

The site is part of datasubject.ie, a trusted source of information about data protection rights for individuals in Ireland maintained and developed by Article Eight Advocacy, an independent not for profit organisation which advocates for data subject rights in Ireland.
