Counties Louth and Meath have adopted a joint Migrant Integration Strategy (link here) with a shared vision to co-ordinate the delivery and ongoing monitoring of the strategy ensuring the active engagement of all stakeholders in its delivery.
We are rolling out 4 virtual workshops to community groups to encourage the integration of migrants into the community through the involvement of their local community groups. The workshops will cover a wide range of areas and topics connected to integration and migrant inclusion
