JRS Ireland works in partnership with individuals, organisations and networks throughout Ireland in order to best meet the needs of asylum seekers, avoid duplication of services and bring added value to the apostolic work of the Jesuits in Ireland.
As part of our mission to challenge racism in all its forms, JRS is an active member of the Irish Network Against Racism (ENAR Ireland). ENAR Ireland is a national network of anti-racism NGOs, which aims to work collectively to highlight and address the issue of racism in Ireland through the promotion and monitoring of EU and global anti-racist initiatives.
A key initiative coordinated by ENAR Ireland is iReport - a reporting system for the people, communities and organisations of Ireland to document incidents of a racist nature that are occurring nationwide. To find out more, visit ENAR Ireland.
JRS also contributes to the work of the Forum on Direct Provision which seeks to bring about positive structural reforms to the reception and accommodation framework for asylum seekers in Ireland.
