IRC Education Fund

This fund was established in 2015 with support from the Community Foundation of Ireland to financially assist people in the asylum process in accessing further education. Since then, through very generous donations from the public, the fund has continued to assist people in the asylum process with their educational needs, be it course fees, transportation costs or course materials.

Education plays a vital role in people’s development, self esteem and integration, if you want to find out more or would like to organise a fundraiser for this fund, please contact Charlotte at or to make a direct donation please visit
