Comhlamh began the dissemination of the initial research results of the Working For a Better World (W4BW) – Sustaining Civic Response Project this week. W4BW is a 2.5 year, EU-funded consortium of organisations in Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain which is focused on the psycho-social resourcing of staff and volunteers working with refugee and asylum-seeking communities. With a focus on forced migration, the project is designing and piloting integrative, trauma-informed Mental Health and Psycho-Social Support resources for use by those working in Search and Rescue capacities at sea and in refugee camp and reception contexts on land.
The initial output of W4BW are national reports and a summative analysis which collates the findings from online surveys and focus groups conducted in the four participating countries. This research will be disseminated to 100s relevant NGOs, CSOs and solidarity networks in Ireland.
