Training & Support

We provide the following training sessions:

  • Immigration and refugee information

    A GUIDE TO THE RIGHTS OF MIGRANTS IN IRELAND

    The session covers an introduction to:

    • The role of the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) and the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB)
    • Registering for an Irish Residence Permit
    • Categories of immigration residence stamps
    • Rights based on immigration status in Ireland

    There is also opportunity to discuss current cases. We have provided this training session to medical social work teams, Tusla – the Family and Child Agency as well as refuges and domestic violence/abuse support services.

    The outcomes of these sessions are:

    • Increased knowledge of the rights and entitlements of non-EEA migrants in terms of immigration, social welfare and housing
    • Increased knowledge of supports and services available to people experiencing difficulties with immigration, social welfare and housing
    • Development of links and referral mechanisms with Crosscare Refugee Service and Crosscare Migrant Project.

    The training session is made possible through funding from the Asylum Migration & Integration Fund (AMIF), managed by the EU Funds Unit of the Department of Justice and Equality, with co-funding from Crosscare.
