Welcome to our resource hub for the CKLP Ukrainian Emergency Response Project.

On arrival in Ireland, there are important milestones to meet and worries to address. In the early days, it can be overwhelming. It’s difficult to know where to start or who to speak to. Services and volunteers are rising to the challenge, but it is a difficult and large task. This project aims to support an effective emergency response over the next few months.

Here we will share useful guides and resources in Ukrainian, Russian and English available to view, download or share.

We hope this information will be useful to those who have recently arrived and are trying to find their way around the system, especially in the early days.

If you are a Ukrainian who has recently arrived and are living with a host, or friends and family please feel free to get in touch so we can create a network for you to find out about supports available.

If you are a host family, service provider, community group or local volunteer, please share this information as widely as you can.

If you have any additional resources or information, you would like us to share here, I would be delighted to hear from you.
