Connect Migrant Youth Project
Nasc’s Connect Project helps young people ages 14-23 years with issues like accessing education, employment, improving their mental health and wellbeing and getting a secure immigration status. We support young asylum seekers living in direct provision and young people in Care and Aftercare services.
This service offers practical advice, advocacy and support for young asylum seekers, refugees and migrants from non-EU countries. We provide step-by-step information and support with immigration applications, assistance in accessing education, employment, health services and accommodation, as well as support with integration and dealing with racism and discrimination. This is an independent service offering free, impartial advice and support.
Who is this service available to?
- Young people in Care and Aftercare services (aged 14-23 years)
- Young people in Direct Provision (aged 14-23 years)
- ‘Aged out’ or ‘age-disputed’ young people
Nasc’s Connect Project is funded by Tusla – the Children and Family Agency and St. Stephens Green Trust.
