Separated Children in Ireland: Call for Blog Contributions

The Irish Refugee Council has reached the 6 month mark of an Independent Advocacy Pilot which centers on supporting separated children in finding their own voice by matching children with advocates who act as mentors.  The objective of the project is to promote the young person’s integration into Irish society and his/her understanding of the asylum process.  The pilot project includes advocates in Dublin, Waterford, Limerick, Cork and Galway who each act on behalf of one or two young people.

On 12 December 2012 the Irish Refugee Council will launch the midterm review of the Independent Advocacy Pilot and on the same day will partner with Human Right in Ireland to run a blog-carnival addressing issues relating to separated children in Ireland.  Young People and Advocates involved in the project will contribute as well.
