About us

Our Goals

Our main goal is to welcome, resettle and support a family seeking refuge from war and enable them to build a new life in Dublin 8. We will be adaptable to the family’s needs at all times but will focus initially on the following specific actions to support the family in their new life here:  

 

  • Fundraising (minimum of €10,000) to support our goal

  • Identifying accommodation for the family

  • Co-ordinating access to the State’s Social Protection services

  • Co-ordinating access to Health Services

  • Co-ordinating access to the Education System for children and other training e.g. English Language

  • Providing any practical and logistical support to the family

  • Navigating cross cultural adaptation challenges throughout the integration journey

  • Assisting in any other way to welcome the family to our community

Information Video

In September 2020 we held a virtual information evening to let people know more about Community Sponsorship and our Project here in Dublin 8. We had members of our group, people who have been sponsored to resettle to Ireland, and members of groups which have already completed the process and are now helping to support families here in Ireland.
