A little bit about them:
UNHCR has had a continuous presence in Ireland since 1998. They work with the Irish government, officials, NGOs and other partners to protect people forced to flee their homes and support them to live their lives with dignity and respect. Ireland has acceded to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol. UNHCR’s supervisory role in relation to compliance with the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees is recognised in national legislation (The International Protection Act 2015).
A little bit about this role:
The consultant will be required to map out the range of resettlement and integration supports currently delivered by government in the implementation of its resettlement programme. In partnership with the other stakeholders from government and civil society, the consultant will draft a comprehensive guide for Regional Support Organisations working to assist Community Sponsorship Groups on how these resettlement and integration supports can be provided in practical terms under the new Community Sponsorship programme.
As well as mapping out the availability of services the manual will therefore identify gaps in the range of services generally available at the local level which may consequently require Community Sponsorship Groups to develop bespoke solutions in each case. The Support Manual, once complete, will serve as a comprehensive reference manual and best practice guide in the delivery of resettlement and integration supports for refugees admitted under Community Sponsorship Ireland.
