Event description

Description

With the number of Irish people returning from abroad increasing, we believe it is important to work together to ensure Irish emigrants are offered a continuum of support as they make their way back to Ireland from around the world, including from the United Kingdom. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Safe Home Ireland, The London Irish Centre and Irish in Britain to offer a FREE Returning to Ireland focused information session this February!

The aim of this session is to share information on the practicalities of returning to Ireland to help front line workers supporting Irish emigrants in Britain considering a move back to the Republic of Ireland. It also offers a great opportunity to network with fellow groups working in the sector.

Facilitated by Sarah Owen of Crosscare Migrant Project and Karen McHugh of Safe Home Ireland, it is available to non-profit organisations in London providing welfare support to Irish emigrants, as well as recipients of Emigrant Support Programme funding and member organisations of the Irish in Britain.

Topics will include:

  • Access to Social Welfare Payments
  • Eligibility for Social Housing
  • Healthcare on return
  • Access to Nursing Home care
  • Making a planned return
  • Homelessness and returning in crisis
  • Making referrals to Crosscare Migrant Project and Safe Home Ireland


We look forward to seeing you on the day!


Note: Please book 1 ticket per attendee. Capacity is limited to a maximum of 30 people. It is requested that attendees bring note taking materials and arrive a little early to facilitate a prompt start to the session. Tea and coffee will be available on the day however please bring a pack lunch with you on the day.
