Pathways to Inclusion

The Pathways to Inclusion Project (Pathways) will mainly focus on the Municipal Districts of Letterkenny and Stranorlar where the majority of the current International Protection Applicants (IPA) participants are located. We will reach further afield as the project progresses.

The venues used by the project include the Platform’s Intercultural Hub (with workshop & IT training facilities, breakout spaces & kitchen), the main events room of Letterkenny Library and activity rooms of the IPAS Port Road Apartments.

Pathways will run for 8 months from approval date December 2022 to September 2023 at latest. The Project will run for 3 days per week over 30 weeks and we hope to secure additional funds to keep the work running well into 2024 and beyond.

Target group will primarily be the IPAs living in the county with some additional focus on the single men in the hostel settings & the IPAS apartments/houses around the county.

Main Activities

Pathways will have four key strategic goals, all with education at their core but making links to employability, language, capacity building and intercultural awareness.
