TROUBLES PERMANENT DISABLEMENT
PAYMENT SCHEME (TPDPS)
This publication has received support from the Victims Support Program for Groups Working with Victims and Survivors, which
is administered by Victims and Survivors Service on behalf of the Executive Office. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect
those of the Victims and Survivors Service.
South East Fermanagh Foundation (SEFF) roots are Lisnaskea, County Fermanagh but the group now also has outreach offices
in Rathfriland, Bessbrook, Newtownstewart, Lisburn and London (serving GB-based victims & survivors) and we also provide
outreach to victims/survivors living across the Republic of Ireland.
Our ethos is clear, that in the context of ‘The Northern Ireland Troubles’ there was and never will be justification for terrorism
and other Troubles related criminal violence - irrespective of who carried it out. All criminal violence was wrong and unjustified.
SEFF is committed to supporting individuals to make the personal transition from a “victim” to a “survivor” as part of a process
of healing and confidence building.
