Who we are

The Migrant Integration team has been established to support refugees and asylum seekers feel welcomed and integrated. Through a range of actions in the South Dublin area, our team assists the collectives in navigating Irish society. The team offers 1-2-1 support, while promoting advocacy through collaborative actions. Our mission is to make community services accessible to the migrant collective and diminish the barriers to their social inclusion. The team focuses on the issues of Physical and Mental Health/Well-Being, Education, Training Activities, Social Supports, Housing/Accommodation, Employment Support, as well as supports for Children and Families, and People living with a Disability and any other issues that may arise.
