In association with the Centre for Applied Social Studies, NUI Maynooth and the Community Workers Cooperative, MRCI has developed a resource guide for community work with migrant workers and their families. The aim of ‘Tools for Social Change’ is to illustrate a community work approach to working with migrant workers and their families, in a practical and engaging manner that both provides theory and supports the development of good community work practice. The guide is intended to be an active tool to support community workers in their work, and contains a mixture of social analysis and useful information in the form of support sheets and case studies from MRCI and around the country. Important stages and developments in adopting a community work approach and key learning points are outlined throughout.


The resource guide is influenced by a set of core values and principles informing community work (as set out in the recent publication ‘Towards Standards for Quality Community Work – An All Ireland Statement of Values, Principles and Work Standards’ – see http://www.cwc.ie/). MRCI hopes it will be a useful contribution to the development of good community work practice in Ireland, particularly in relation to working with migrant workers and their families.
