Dublin 8 Refugee Community Sponsorship

Dublin 8 Refugee Community Sponsorship (D8RCS) is a voluntary group of local residents preparing to welcome a refugee family to our community, and support them as they build a new life in Ireland.

D8RCS is set up under the 'Community Sponsorship Programme Ireland', an initiative of the Government of Ireland. To take part in this program, our group is required to raise funds to support our new neighbours as they settle in to our community. The money raised will be used to secure housing and cover other essential costs of resettlement. If you can, please support our efforts by donating or getting involved .

​Through community sponsorship, refugees who are fleeing conflict and persecution are brought to a safe and secure country like Ireland, where they are supported by the local community. D8RCS is an expression of hospitality within our community. Our group aims to celebrate and enhance our cultural diversity by welcoming a refugee family seeking safety to join us, so that we can grow and prosper together in Dublin 8.
