Is Rainbow Muid

“Is Rainbow Muid, We Are Rainbow” is a Peer Support group for LGBT+ people seeking international protection in Ireland.

The peer support group offers a safe space for people to talk openly and confidentially with other LGBT+ people seeking international protection about their experiences. The group meet monthly on Saturdays.

The group is facilitated by the LGBT Ireland peer support group facilitator and volunteers. LGBT Ireland also works closely with the Irish Refugee Council for this support group.

As with all the peer support groups run by LGBT Ireland, safety in the group is of paramount importance. People accessing peer support are experiencing support needs and vulnerabilities which need special protection. In LGBT Ireland we take our duty of care very seriously.

LGBT Ireland uses international best practice screening procedures in order to maximise the safety and security of “Is Rainbow Muid, We Are Rainbow”.

The screening process involves:

1– an email to peer support group facilitator, please email: training@lgbt.ie

2– a screening meeting with facilitator and one other experienced person to assess the suitability of the peer support for the referred person; signposting to other more suitable services.
