Launch of Resettlement Services in Waterford and Kilkenny

Respond Support today announced it is to be the Key Service partner in the provision of Refugee Resettlement services in counties Waterford and Kilkenny. Working closely with the Department of Justice and Equality, with both local authorities and a range of other agencies,  Respond Support will work over the next two years with Syrian Refugees settling into the community.  Translators, Intercultural workers and Resettlement Support staff will take up their posts in the coming weeks, to commence service delivery in January.

 “ We look forward to be working in partnership with the Department of Justice & Equality, Local Councils and local Statutory agencies in the delivery of the Resettlement Programme. The situation in Syria has been described as the worst humanitarian crises of our time and we look forward to working with and assisting the families to settle in and integrate  into their new communities.”
