It is well documented that children and families in direct provision centres are vulnerable and at risk because of isolation, depression and other factors related to their personal histories and circumstances.
Offering opportunities for children to play together in supervised situations allows for children to build bridges with one another across religious and cultural differences. Offering opportunities for families to mix together in social and cultural events breaks down barriers with adults and allows for opportunities to support one another.
Some of the volunteers at Twice Is Nice will be from the Asylum Seeker Community, affording them the opportunity to have meaningful activity and to contribute their skills and time as they are restricted from working while waiting for their legal situation to be processed.
The funding we receive from the HSE does not cover all the services we wish to provide and to this end we have opened our charity shop on the corner of Andersons Quay and Clontarf St. beside the Bus Eireann Depot.
