Refugee Resettlement Toolkit


What It Is and Who It’s For
It is hoped that by sharing the resources and insights gathered through Doras Luimní’s 20 years of work in the migration sector, including almost 5 years in Refugee Resettlement in Ireland, this Toolkit will assist people working in Refugee Resettlement or Community Sponsorship. It is designed to be a small support to support-workers and community sponsorship groups by sharing knowledge and resources gathered by Doras staff. It is hoped that other resettlement practitioners may be able to develop this resource and share their own wealth of experience and knowledge.

About This Toolkit
This Toolkit looks broadly at thematic issues, containing ‘go to’ resources ready to print and use. It is hoped that this will be a useful, practical document with printable materials and will save time spent in research and development. These resources have been tried, tested, reviewed and developed across three Doras Luimní refugee resettlements in Laois (2015-2016), Limerick (2017-2018) and Wexford (2017-2019).
