Doras invites you to the launch of the Migrant Victim of Crime Support project at Ormston House on Wednesday 24 August, 12-1pm. Learn about this new project for those affected by issues such as racism, hate crime, enforced labour and employment exploitation, FGM, domestic abuse, sexual crime, gender-based violence, human-trafficking including sexual exploitation. The event will be broadcast live on the Doras social media channels for those who are unable to attend in person.

Doras has identified a need to expand and consolidate their victim support work in order to effectively meet the complex needs of and demand for their service from migrant and refugee victims of crime. Furthermore, they recognize the need for a national multi-disciplinary victim support service that specialises in providing dedicated support and meeting the special protection needs of migrant and refugee victims of crime.

The project was developed to address the current gaps in service provision for victims of crime who have special protection needs in line with Article 22 of the EU Victims Directive.The project will work to overcome the significant barriers faced by migrants and refugees with regard to accessing justice and appropriate support services.

At the launch, Doras representatives will outline what services this project will offer to migrants, asylum seekers and refugees that have been victims of crime in Ireland. There will also be some time allowed to answer questions, network and explore how we can all work together to better support those that have been victims of crime.
