As Ireland prepares to accept thousands of migrants fleeing civil war and strife, a community centre based in Tallaght is one initiative which will help migrants integrate into the country.
Established in the year 2003, the Intercultural drop in centre provides help and support to new migrants and Irish nationals in the Tallaght area of Dublin. Backed by funding from the office for the promotion of migrant integration, the centre welcomes all nationalities.
While being a first point of contact for new migrants in the Tallaght area, the centre also provides a number of services to help migrants integrate into Irish society. Primary among these is English tuition, which migrants can avail of in group or one-to-one sessions. The centre also teaches migrants how to carry out essential duties in English, such as booking a doctor’s appointment over the phone or taking the driver theory test. More recreational and fun activities are also catered for by the centre, such as drama and photo clubs.
The centre is open from Monday till Friday, with typical opening hours being 9am-2pm. The centre’s address is ‘Mountain Park, Tallaght, Dublin 24’. (Busses 75 and 77a) (Luas stop – The square)
