The Irish Red Cross (IRC) established a project to facilitate the provision of disability and Psychological First Aid (PFA) support for Ukraine refugees arriving in Ireland as a result of the ongoing conflict. The intention of this initiative is to build on the existing IRC programme of PFA with an aim to assist those suffering from mental stress due to the extreme trauma of their experiences. Additionally, the IRC has committed to the provision of assistive devices and support for Ukrainians arriving in Ireland who are living with disabilities.

The Care Trust provided a grant of €50,000 to the IRC to support the PFA programme and their allocation of assistive devices, such as wheelchairs, to Ukraine refugees.
