Asylum seekers to be housed in just 4 months under new fast track system

Asylum seekers to be housed in just 4 months under new fast track system
A new fast track housing system for asylum seekers arriving in Ireland will see applicants housed within four months and will become a "standard feature of Irish cities and towns" .

Details of the new system are contained in a governmental report entitled : "a white paper to end direct provision and establish a new International Protection support service"  

Under the new system which will be phased in between february 2021 and december 2024 , asylum seekers arriving in Ireland will initially be housed in one of six state owned reception and integration centres with own-door or own-room accommodation where they will receive free healthcare , childcare , educational and financial supports . Applicants will be eligible for a driving licence and bank account .

After 4 months , applicants will be given a home and receive an income support payment from the department of children & equality at a rate similar to the supplementary welfare allowance . Non Governmental Organisations will be funded by the department of children to provide support services during this period and applicants will be entitled to access employment if they do not receive a decision on their application within six months . 

According to the report ..."Accommodation will be located in all counties" and "Private tenancies will be used to source accommodation for families and rent a room schemes for single people" 

The location and number of applicants to be accommodated in each county will be determined by the county and city management association in cooperation with the department of children & equality . The new system will be overseen by a programme board chaired by the department of children and include representatives from NGOs, human rights organisations and former asylum seekers . 

Writing in the report minister for children Roderic O'Gorman said .. "Each county will be asked to accommodate applicants for International Protection so that the International Protection accommodation process becomes a standard feature of Irish cities and towns".   

Figures published in the report show that 8,812 asylum applications were being processed at the end July 2020 . The top 5 countries of origin for asylum applicants were Pakistan , Nigeria , Zimbabwe , Georgia and Albania . Of these , 5,613 were men and 3,198 women . 
government report published last september by the advisory group on direct provision showed that between the years 2002 and July 2020 more than 80% of asylum claims were not considered genuine on the first attempt . 
 

Meanwhile , latest social housing figures [ 02/11/2020 ] puts the number of people waiting on social housing in Ireland at 61,880 with over a quarter of people (27.2%) waiting longer than 7 years [link] . Last summer , a freedom of information request to dublin city council put the waiting time for a house in that district at 12 years with one person waiting more than 20 years .

maybe we should all apply for asylum , i heard roderic o'gormans department is going to buy up private housing for them

Equality ?? - asylum seekers will get housed in 4 months but everyone else 12 years .

Mr Roderic O Gorman, explain how this is "EQUALITY" . how is this treating everyone equal ????

^
asylum seeker will get house in 4 months , but everyone else 10 years and they wonder why people are so angry . This is not only very wrong but will stir up tensions within communities .

government statistics are showing us that most asylum seekers (80% +) are not even genuine refugees , they come from safe countries and arrive at dublin airport . why on earth would you give them priority over irish citizens who have paid taxes here and contributed to the economy over the years
^
very unfair to irish citizens who are waiting years for a house . stats show most asylum seekers arrive from safe countries . for example , last year , people from Nigeria made up the largest nationality claiming asylum here . In fact Over the history of the asylum system Nigerian nationals made up the largest nationality group .

Nigeria is listed as a 'safe country of origin by the UK government. Its a country with SIX MILLION Tourists every year , so it cant be that bad . Its own president even said they should stay at home and help the country.

also , On a Journey from Nigeria to Ireland , how many SAFE countries must you pass to get here . why not claim asylum in any of those .

They see Ireland as a soft touch ripe in social benefits and free stuff run by NGOS who are making a fortune out of the whole thing
^
why wont they do this for irish homeless . irish people are human beings too .
^
KNOCK KNOCK - HERE'S THE KEY TO YOUR FREE HOUSE- IS THAT ALL I GET ?
In the meantime the IRISH are knock,knock,knocking ON HEAVENS DOOR.
IT SHOULD BE BLATANTLY CLEAR BY NOW - REPLACEMENT IS THE GOVT. PRIORITY
^
shame on roderic o'gorman and his department . my heart goes out to every irish family on the housing list reading this . a second class citizen in your own country . so many irish children and families living in poverty and homeless they are given nothing .
