Your support helps us to assist more people and make positive and lasting changes on policies and programmes for those seeking protection in Ireland. Unrestricted funds, through your donations, give us the independence to ensure your money goes where it is needed most to have the most impact on the lives of the people we work with and for. 

For every €1,000 we raise we can:

Reunite five forcibly displaced children with their family:

We believe no child should be needlessly alone, separated from their families when it is within all of our power to reunite them. Your support will allow us to prepare applications for family reunification, organise evidence and prepare housing, schooling and other supports ahead of the family’s arrival. 

Provide holistic integration supports to the reunited families:

We believe integration for people seeking protection in Ireland should begin from day one in order to cultivate and nurture a sense of welcoming and belonging. Your support will go a long way in empowering those we work with and for with holistic supports including housing, employment, education, youth work, health, language support, community sponsorship

Find a home for five people at risk of homelessness:

In the midst of the housing crisis, the people we work with and for are at risk of racism, abuse, and often struggle to leave Direct Provision accommodation. Your support will allow us to find a home for people by preparing a housing application, looking for accommodation on their behalf, accompanying people on viewings, and negotiating with landlords. See our housing work for more information. 

Legally represent a LGBT+ refugee through their asylum claim:

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) people seeking protection in Ireland face many barriers and challenges within the asylum process, read more here. Your support will allow us to fully represent and guide them through this arduous process which takes at least 30 staff hours as well as administration and operational costs 

Assist four people onto further education

Education plays an empowering role in people's development, self-esteem and integration. It is also an investment in our future, in our country, in our progress. People seeking protection in Ireland also face a significant barrier of non-recognition of their previous qualifications. 

Your support of our Education work broadens access to higher education for people in the protection process. For just €250 euro we can cover a person’s course fees as well as assist with their transport or course material costs
