    Posted on August 29, 2022 by in News Updates

    Wicklow Children and Young People Services Committee [Wicklow CYPSC], together with Bray Area Partnership and County Wicklow Partnership, launched three videos and a series of maps designed to offer support to the Ukrainian community in County Wicklow on Monday last (Aug 22).

    Since the start of 2022, Wicklow has welcomed Ukrainian people displaced by the war in their homeland. The partners involved in the Community Response Forum, led by Wicklow County Council, have been working hard to make this transition as easy as possible.

     

    The videos and maps being launched today will help that transition.

     

    The Co-ordinator of Wicklow CYPSC, Fionnuala Curry, stated:  “We are delighted to launch the videos and maps today and we hope that they will help our friends from Ukraine to find the main services and supports in the county. We know this is a challenging time for you and we hope this will help in a small way. I am grateful to my partners Bray Area Partnership and County Wicklow Partnership for their significant contribution to this project and to McKenna Creative for their work in designing both the videos and maps. We are asking people to promote the videos and maps by sharing the links widely through their websites and social media accounts.

     

    The Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Tommy Annesley, welcomed the launch of the videos and maps and paid tribute to the ongoing work of Wicklow CYPSC and the entire Wicklow Community in their response to the crisis in Ukraine.

     

    Deputy Chief Executive of Wicklow County Council, Michael Nicholson, added that the Council is at the forefront of the emergency response, in sourcing accommodation for the Ukrainians and working with all the agencies in the county, under the auspices of the Community Response Forum, and stated that the videos and maps will further assist our displaced friends from Ukraine.

    The videos and maps are divided across North, South and West Wicklow and you can find them at the links below.
