- A home-visiting programme that helps members of the Syrian community by calling to their homes to assist women with their English
- How to access a befriending programme for Syrian families
- Actively liaising on your behalf with state agencies and departments in order to ensure they receive any benefits or opportunities to which they may be entitled
- One-to-one advice clarifying or explaining how Irish society operates, both culturally and legally
