We are a voluntary group of local residents preparing to welcome a refugee family to our community, and support them as they build a new life in Ireland. D8RCS is set up under the Community Sponsorship Ireland programme an initiative of the Government of Ireland. To take part in this program, our group must raise €10,000 to support our new neighbours as they settle in to our community. The money raised will be used to secure housing and cover other essential costs of resettlement.

Through community sponsorship, refugees who are fleeing conflict and persecution are brought to a safe and secure country like Ireland, where they are supported by the local community. D8RCS is an expression of hospitality within our community. Our group aims to celebrate and enhance our cultural diversity by welcoming a refugee family seeking safety to join us, so that we can grow and prosper together in Dublin 8.
D8RCS is supported by the Irish Refugee Council, a regional support organisation under the Community Sponsorship Programme.
