Funding for Integration and the Employment of Migrants Projects
€3.3 million allocated to 5 projects across the country
Grants totalling €3.3 million to promote integration and the employment of migrants have been awarded to a total of 5 projects. The projects will be delivered in the coming four year period in multiple locations across Ireland by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), locally based community groups, and others, who were successful following an open Call for Proposals for funding under the European Social Fund 2014 - 2020.
Under the European Social Fund, €3.3 million is being made available over four years for projects that will increase the employability of migrants who may be experiencing barriers to entering the labour market here.
Examples of the integration and employment of migrants projects selected for funding include:
- A Dublin-based project to assist migrants to raise their skills and help them find employment and employment related training opportunities including work placement and mentoring.
- A nationwide project to migrants providing them with training focussed on needs assessment, development of personalised action plan and job readiness training.
