With the numbers of Irish people returning from abroad increasing, we believe it is important to work together to ensure Irish emigrants are offered a continuum of support as they make their way back to Ireland from around the world, including from the United Kingdom. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Safe Home Ireland, The London Irish Centre and Irish in Britain to offer a FREE ‘Returning to Ireland’ focused information session in February!
The aim of this session is to provide practical information to help front line workers to support Irish emigrants considering a return to Ireland from the UK. It also offers a great opportunity to network with fellow groups working in the sector.
Facilitated by Sarah Owen of Crosscare Migrant Project and Karen McHugh of Safe Home Ireland, it is available to non-profit organisations in London providing welfare support to Irish emigrants, as well as recipients of Emigrant Support Programme funding and member organisations of the Irish in Britain.
Topics will include:
- Access to Social Welfare Payments
- Eligibility for Social Housing
- Healthcare on return
- Access to Nursing Home care
- Making a planned return
- Homelessness and returning in crisis
- Making referrals to Crosscare Migrant Project and Safe Home Ireland
The session will take place on Thursday 14th February 2019 from 11am to 4pm at the London Irish Centre in Camden. Places are limited to register early to avoid disappointment.
