The JRS Ireland Summer Programme is designed to improve the health and wellbeing of children living in the Direct Provision accommodation system in Dublin, through a range of activities that offer the opportunity for play, integration and development of social skills outside an institutionalised environment.   

Children, aged 4-12, living in Direct Provision were provided with the following range of activities: 
  • Family excursions to Portmarnock beach. 
  • Day trip to Fort Lucan Outdoor Adventure Land. 
  • Family BBQ.
  • Visit to Corkagh Park and Pet Farm. 
  • Day trip to Glenroe Farm. 
  • On-site visit by Reuben the Entertainer. 
  • Leisureplex Bowling.
  • Leisureplex Soft Play. 
  • Visits to IMC and Odeon Cinemas. 
Due to the nature of the activities, the families of participating children and local communities also derived value from the programme.
Finally, a special thanks is due to IMPACT, Dublin City Council and CDYSB for the fantastic support provided in 2016.
