This Thursday, 13th October, at 6pm, Limerick City and County Council and Doras are hosting an event for anyone who is thinking about or already providing host accommodation for Ukrainians in and around Limerick. It will take place in the Kilmurray Lodge Hotel, Dublin Road, Limerick, Limerick, V94 WTC9 at 6pm. To register, click here.
This is an opportunity for people to meet other hosts and to ask questions of experts in the field. Representatives from the Irish Red Cross, Limerick City and County Council, Doras and other organisations involved in supporting hosts and beneficiaries will be present.
The session will start at 6pm with an opportunity to meet and discuss over light refreshments. At 7pm, a number of organisations will talk on what you should know as a host (vetting, agreement, etc.), relationships with your guests and what they should expect, the services and supports available to your guest, training for hosts and responding to the challenges of hosting refugees.
This event will also be of interest to others involved in supporting people from Ukraine.
