I live in a small village in the west of Ireland and we don’t have any group who work specifically with refugees. St Vincent De Paul offer a wide range of support to refugees in the area but it is mainly about getting these people involved in the community through the tiny towns committee and local GAA club to enjoy activities and meet other people in the locality. The schools also play a huge part in welcoming and including these people in any initiatives that they may have. It is very important for us as teachers to stress the importance of understanding and empathy among students and educate them in this area.
