Accompanying Residents in Direct Provision

| September 30th, 2017

Eyre Powell in Newbridge, Co Kildare, is one of over 30 Direct Provision Centres in Ireland.

What are Direct Provision Centres?

  • They are institutions in which people who come to seek refuge in Ireland are accommodated.
  • They are run by private companies and receive government funding.
  • Here they receive food and shelter while their application for asylum is being processed.
  • The length of time this process takes varies from months to years.
  • Some have waited for 10 years.
