Our Diaspora Strategy sets out what the Government will do over the next five years to support and engage with our diaspora communities around the world.
Emigrant Support Programme
The Emigrant Support Programme is a tangible expression of the Government’s support of, commitment to, and interest in the global Irish community. It aims to strengthen the international Irish community and its bond with Ireland. We have developed a range of information documents to assist organisations applying for Emigrant Support Programme Funding. These documents outline what we look for in our consideration of applications and highlight best practice to assist organisations in being successful with their applications.
