Migrants' Forum

Migrant Voices

Migrant Forum 2012

As part of MRCI’s commitment to providing accurate and up-to-date information to migrants, we set up the Migrants' Forum some years ago. The Forum is a place for migrant workers and their families to share their experiences, receive support and information, share and develop our analysis of the issues facing migrant workers in Ireland, and identify solutions to shared issues.

All migrant workers and their family members are welcome to participate in the Migrants Forum. It is a family friendly, informal and diverse space. Information on future Forums, including dates and topics, is available on flyers and posters in the MRCI Drop-In Centre and also on our Facebook page.We are always looking for more people who would like to participate and have their voices heard.

If you would like to know more about the Forum and how to get involved, contact Sancha in MRCI:

Some feedback from the Migrants' Forum:

“The forum gives me the opportunity to be updated on laws and information that affects me and my family here in Ireland. It also informs me about what is going on in the lives of other migrant workers.  In the future I think more migrant workers should involve in organising the forum, this will be very important."

“A good space to come together, get information and share experiences in a less intimidating way. This is very important."

As a case worker attending and participating in the Migrants Forum, it is a good way of knowing the different issues facing migrant workers and their families.  A very diverse group attends and there are very  different issues and things that come up, it’s all there, It is a space for social interaction that is not just only on the surface but about building relationships which is very important."
