Integration of residents from Direct Provision Centre Ardee

Posted by Dara MacGabhann on Mar 24, 2021

A present around 60 residents with little or no English language skills reside in Setanta House Ardee. Currently plans are underway to establish a buddy volunteer programme to match local residents with the same interests with a resident from the DP centre. Plans are also under way to establish a Fáilte Isteach hub which will enable the residents to practice their English conversation. The challenge will be to engage interpreters, volunteers and carry out social events within the current climate and Covid restrictions. Plans are already in motion with Louth Volunteer Centre, Louth LEADER and the hosts DEEhub.

So proud to be supporting this - we have been highlighting volunteerism as a route to community connectivity and integration for many years. Hoping it will prove very successful in Ardee as elsewhere

Integration of migrants into our communities essential to dispel fears around migration and use the skills of our migrants to the benefit of our country.

COVID and isolation a common theme. Particularly difficult for people living in direct provision.
Great you have highlighted this as it requires urgent attention and support.
