Poles constitute the largest immigrant group in Ireland – according to the 2016 census, there are 122 515 Poles in Ireland, with around 30 000 currently residing in County Cork. Since 2006, the Together-Razem Centre in Cork has been helping Poles as well as other migrants from Central and Eastern Europe. We are an Irish charity and our mission focuses on these four areas:
Advice and support – offering social and legal advice.
Mental health – providing therapeutic services through the U-Clinic Counselling Services and developmental workshops.
Education – conducting English language courses and running five afternoon schools for Polish children – Razem Academy in Cork, Cobh, Ballincollig, Midleton and Clonakilty.
Integration – implementing integration programmes, such as programmes aimed at senior citizens, e.g. "Well-Informed Senior", projects in the field of civic and cultural activity, e.g. our theatre group Bric-a-Brac, "Activator" and many other projects.
