Evaluation ex post
Once the programme ended, information gathering ceased in compliance with GDPR. There was no official ex-evaluation report for this initiative.
A toolkit was developed, based on the learning and range of interventions emanating from the project and is now publicly available. This toolkit covers a broad range of areas, from pre-arrival and planning, through to awareness raising, dealing with finances, health and wellbeing, supporting women, LGBT+, older people, people with disabilities, lessons for good practice, recommendations and supporting children and young people. The full toolkit is available at the following link.
The toolkit facilitates replicability.
Motivation for the submission
This UN resettlement programme brings our attention to the importance of identifying sub-groups within resettlement schemes. It also raises our awareness of the limitations of time bound initiatives. The continuation of the programme was enabled through the involvement of Doral Lúimi, a Migrant support NGO, whose work continued outside of original programme timeframes. Ongoing support, attention to individual needs and recognition of relationship-building within the process of integration are important aspects of this initiative.
