In Our Care helps to connect local knowledge and goodwill with county and national processes to provide:
Safe shelter and supportive integration for Ukrainian refugees while in Ireland
A framework for supporting refugees of all nationalities, and
Long-lasting environmental, social, and economic benefits for local communities.
Our response to this crisis can be transformational and must be locally led. InOurCare supports all sectors of society to come together and includes a facility for local property professionals to advise local authorities and map availability and characteristics of potential housing.
