LIVING IN IRELAND: An Integration Website for Migrants living in Ireland


Share |

Crosscare Refugee Service has developed a leaflet for people with refugee status or subsidiary protection who have family members joining them in Ireland under the family reunification programme. It contains important information about how to access a Personal Public Service Number (PPSN) and  register with the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS). It also gives information on how to access social protection payments, housing, health, educational and employment supports. It was developed with the generous assistance of the Association of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI) and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).
