South Dublin County is home to many people from non-Irish backgrounds. To help the most vulnerable migrants to find their way in Irish society, we offer a range of supports and activities.
We have an Intercultural drop-in centre in the Tallaght area where we offer English language tuition with a team of dedicated volunteers. The focus is on practical language skills and conversation. The Centre also provides information & advocacy supports, community group meetings and specialized housing supports for migrants who have processed through the refugee and asylum system. Talk to Carmen Paredes or Emma McGuire for more information or if you have suggestions for new activities.
The Intercultural Centre in Clondalkin organises a range of activities from English classes to community groups and art/crafts workshops; it offers volunteering opportunities and information & referrals. To find out more about the Clondalkin Intercultural Centre, contact Marie Corr or Lyuba Moore if you want information about the language classes.
We work with a range of local organizations to support members of the Roma community in Tallaght. In addition to a GP service for Roma in Tallaght, we organise a range of cultural and health-related activities. Contact Marjo Moonen for more information.
