On Thursday, October 13th at 6pm, Doras and Limerick City and County Council (LCCC) are hosting a regional information event for anyone who is providing host accommodation for Ukrainians in and around the Mid West region. It will take place in the Kilmurray Lodge Hotel, Dublin Road, Limerick, Limerick, V94 WTC9.
This is an opportunity for people to meet other hosts, and to ask questions of experts in the field. Representatives from the Irish Red Cross, LCCC, Doras and other organisations involved in supporting hosts and beneficiaries will be present.
The session will start at 6pm with an opportunity to meet and discuss over light refreshments. At 7pm, a number of organisations will present on what you should know as a host (vetting, agreement, etc.), relationships with your guests and what they should expect, the services and supports available to your guest, training for hosts, and the responding to challenges in the hosting of refugees.
This event will also be of interest to others involved in supporting people from Ukraine.
