Seeking Community Navigators for a project on forced marriage
We’re looking for people of a migrant and refugee background committed to social justice and equality and are passionate to join our project on ending forced marriages as Community Navigators.
About the project:
The Immigrant Council of Ireland is a partner in the CERV-funded EASY project which aims to increase community engagement and dialogue, raise awareness, and develop victim-centred support for victims of forced marriages. The project will in the long run contribute to a more gender-sensitive and victim-centred access to services for victims of forced marriage and improve gender equality by preventing forced marriages and their harmful consequences.
As a key aspect of this project the Immigrant Council of Ireland is seeking to recruit participants to act as Community Navigators for this project. Community Navigators will, with support of ICI staff members, engage with migrant communities to raise awareness about available supports related to forced marriage.
A small bursary is available to each Community Navigator to be involved in this project. The project will run from October until May and will have a commitment of approximately two days a month. You will be able to carry out project-related activities remotely, however some days will be required to attend meetings and training sessions in Dublin at the ICI offices.
