Peter McVerry Trust
Since April 2019 Peter McVerry Trust’s Resettlement Service provides housing progression support across 31 accommodation centres across much of the southern half of Ireland. Peter McVerry Trust resettlement team members hold weekly clinics in accommodation centres, with a staff team of eight currently working on the project. Peter McVerry Trust works with people in Direct Provision to support them to source, and settle into, their own homes. The people supported are a mixture of single adults, couples and families. Currently the main focus is on family households with children.
Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Ireland
The Connecting Communities Project aims to enhance the long-term integration prospects of persons granted status/permission to remain as they seek to exit IPAS accommodation – and reduce the associated impacts of social exclusion – through the provision of comprehensive integration supports throughout the transition process and after they move into communities nationwide. The project seeks to complement the accommodation finding service coordinated by the Peter McVerry Trust and Depaul for IPAS residents.
