Wicklow County Council to Accomodate 38 Syrian Families Under Irish Refugee Protection Programme  

An Inter-agency Committee made up of various state bodies, including the HSE, TUSLA and the Department of Social Protection, as well as MABS, the Gardai and the Wicklow Volunteer Centre has been established to ensure the necessary supports are in place.

It’s intended to accommodate the families across the Municipal Districts, where suitable accommodation has been identified and sourced and the necessary supports can be provided. 

The Irish Government has given a commitment to resettle approximately 4,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Ireland.
