Welcome to the Direct Provision virus information website

On 12th March 2020 the government announced a shutdown of educational facilities in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

This has created serious difficulties for both parents and children living in direct provision.

These include:

  • Parent unfamiliarity with education system
  • Parent unable to help children due to unfamiliarity with subject material
  • Child unable to access online educational material provided by school
  • Cost of mobile phone data

This website is being developed to address some of these issues.
