A new scheme to replace Direct Provision could be on the way

Words: Katie Gartland

A new scheme to replace the current inhumane practice of Ireland’s direct provision has been proposed to the Government.

The scheme would save the country millions of euro that is currently being spent on private companies to run direct provision centres.

An investigation by an expert group into the system led to a list of recommendations. A new scheme for asylum seekers could see them staying in temporary government-owned accommodation for three months then moving on to a local-authority led housing scheme.

The Government appointed the team of experts to investigate the Direct Provision scheme, however, it is not obliged to take on all of the recommendations made my the team.
