Supporting International Protection Applicants

Launch of Information Videos to Support International Protection Applicants at Croí na Gaillimhe SVP Resource Centre in Galway City on the 20th of June


Croí na Gaillimhe SVP Resource Centre is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of two informative videos aimed at providing support to international protection applicants. The launch event is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 20th, at 12pm, at Croí na Gaillimhe SVP Resource Centre, located in Galway City.


The videos, created by people who have extensive experience supporting international protection applicants when they are preparing for their main interview with the International Protection Office in Ireland, aim to offer practical guidance and assistance to individuals seeking international protection. They cover essential information and provide helpful tips to empower applicants as they navigate through the process. The videos will be available on YouTube in four languages: English, Arabic, Somali and Georgian. 


The launch event will bring together community members, representatives from support organisations, and those interested in the topic. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the videos and understand how they can benefit international protection applicants. Representatives of Croí naGaillimhe will share insights and highlight the importance of providing support during this challenging experience.


Croí na Gaillimhe SVP Resource Centre, a dedicated centre serving vulnerable individuals, is committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive community. The launch of these videos aligns perfectly with their mission, providing tangible resources and promoting understanding and compassion within society.
