Crosscare Information & Advocacy Services

Crosscare Information & Advocacy Service works to provide increased stability and quality of life for vulnerable and marginalised people, including those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We work to support people with low or no income, Irish emigrants and migrants, refugees and asylum seekers living in Ireland. We have three projects:

Crosscare Refugee Service

We work with

  • Refugees, family members of refugees, programme refugees, people with subsidiary protection and leave to remain, international protection applicants and naturalised Irish citizens.
  • We provide culturally sensitive information, advice, and support on a range of issues, including health and well-being, homelessness, housing, social welfare, international protection and immigration processes.
  • We assist clients with obtaining and renewing their Irish Residence Permit and with applications to the Immigration Service around citizenship and family members.

Our Women’s Group supports women who have been through the international protection process or who have come to Ireland through family reunification. It meets every Friday morning.

We provide a Somali language clinic with interpreters. We offer phone, video, email and in-person meetings by appointment.
