Employment training for Refugee Women

20 March 2018

The Irish Refugee Council is launching a pilot programme aimed at addressing the barriers to employment experienced by women who have refugee status in Ireland.

This programme will work with 15 refugee women (which includes women with refugee status, subsidiary protection, leave to remain or who are family reunification beneficiaries,) in the Dublin area and organise an employment preparation programme, followed by a work placement.

The programme will incorporate a peer support group and mentorship. It is hoped that all 15 women will be in employment or preparing for further education by the end of the project (Dec 31).

This is an excellent opportunity to receive long-term personalised support and mentoring in relation to finding employment.
