Longford Community Resources Ltd. manages the Asylum Seeker and Refugee Support Project.  The project is based in County Longford.
 
This project aims to support the reception of asylum seekers by increasing knowledge of their rights and entitlements and by improving their access to cultural and recreational activities.  The project also promotes the integration of refugees through a range of initiatives that support their interaction with the wider community. 
 
Project actions include a focus on:
 
• The provision of information and advice to asylum seekers and refugees.
 
• Linking asylum seekers and refugees with appropriate supports and services.
 
• Supporting the participation of asylum seekers and refugees in community and voluntary organisations.
 
• The establishment of an Intercultural Inter-Agency Forum.
 
• The development of a mentoring programme.
 
• Support for the organisation of local intercultural events.
 
 
The project ended in September 2011.
