SUPPORTING UKRAINIAN REFUGEE FAMILIES

Welcome to the NEW UKRAINIAN FAMILY SUPPORT HUB
A service dedicated to supporting children and families from Ukraine adjusting to life in County Donegal.  We recognise that family life is not always easy. Life events can affect our family life and family relationships. Supported by CYPSC Donegal and TUSLA.
Your Family Support Worker is here to support you and will:
• Listen, support and assist you in your family place of residence
• Create the conditions for the inclusion of parents in accessing appropriate services
• sign-post you to specific support services for adults, teenagers, children and carers
• Support your inclusion in TUSLA’S ‘Meitheal’ system of Family Support gatherings so that you can address issues with a team of support organisations and agencies to assist you and your family.
• Inform you of Children’s Rights under ‘Children First’ legislation in Ireland so that you are informed of all aspects of law relating to family support and Child Protection in Ireland.

The Platform has been helping to coordinate volunteer supports for the recently arrived refugees from Ukraine. We are active members of the Donegal Community Response Forum, we are outreaching to host families, providing English Language conversational sessions and supporting the building of relationships between people.

TUSLA and the Children & Young Person’s Services Committee (CYPSC) have asked us to establish a Child and Family Support service for the Ukrainians, offering a drop-in space in Letterkenny and outreach to the various accommodation locations across Donegal. We are also interested in supporting Ukrainian refugees living with host families and in identifying summer activity opportunities for the Ukrainian young people and other refugees across the county.  If you would like to offer to volunteer to support this work please call 0860841433 or email: paul.coord@interculturaldonegal.org 

English Language Conversation Clubs

We have an English Language Speaking club in Letterkenny Central Library and Donegal Town and are starting new sessions in Ballybofey/Stranorlar,  Malin, Bundoran, Milford, Dungloe and other locations as we train-up volunteer tutors. Get in touch if you can join us in this initiative. email: paul.coord@interculturaldonegal.org for more information or use the contact page on this website.

Donegal Intercultural Platform along with it’s project partners Donegal Local Development Company CLG (DLDC) and Donegal Travellers Project (DTP) are delighted that the ‘Think Equality Donegal’ Project has been awarded multi-year funding from the Equality Fund. The Fund supports organisations and groups that empower marginalised communities and tackle systemic inequality. A total of eleven civil-society projects throughout Ireland have been selected to share part of the €3 million funding and we are delighted that Think Equality Donegal (TED) is among the chosen projects.  The primary focus of this collaborative initiative is to develop and deliver training on the issues of Public Sector Duty, equality and diversity and to work in tandem with the Intercultural Training Team managed by Donegal Travellers Project (DTP) and supported by the Intercultural Platform.
