Integration begins from the moment an asylum seeker, refugee, or forced migrant arrives in Ireland. It is a two-way process that helps to create an environment of respect for diversity and equality and benefits both the newcomers and the host community.

JRS Ireland advocates a coherent and adequately resourced integration model, which meets the housing, employment, health, education, and welfare needs of all people arriving in Ireland by offering a range of services and projects. We provide language support, legal support and assistance with the integration of children into schools. JRS Ireland prioritises efforts to increase the employability of asylum seekers in order to facilitate their successful transition from Direct Provision.
