As an organisation we have a long history of providing Family Support, Early Years’, Day Care services to older people and bespoke, client-centred services in communities throughout Ireland. Respond Support currently provide refugee resettlement services in County Kilkenny and County Waterford.
Over the next twelve months Respond Support will be working closely with the community in Longford and with other local agencies to support all those new to the community in Longford, who have relocated as part of the Refugee Integration Programme.
Albert Perris is no stranger to Longford as he has previously worked closely with a number of agencies in the delivery of social housing and homeless services in the town.
“Longford is a wonderful community, always very open and supportive to those in need. I have always been hugely impressed by the local initiative, generosity and inter-agency cooperation between services and organisations in the town. Respond Support are looking forward to working with all relevant agencies and the community to welcome and support our new neighbours as they settle into Longford.”
Albert Perris, CEO of Respond Support
