Waterford Council Local Authority Integration Team

Our role

The aim of the Local Authority Integration Team is to help people to integrate into Irish society. Integration means helping people who have moved to a new country feel like they belong while also preserving their own identity and culture. This will include access to learning the language, entering employment, education, and training.


The Local Authority Integration Team works with


  • Applicants for International Protection
  • Those with Refugee, Subsidiary Protection, or Permission to remain status
  • Programme Refugees
  • Beneficiaries of Temporary Protection


What we do


The Local Authority Integration Team will guide you to services you need to integrate into the community. To do this, we need to identify the supports you need. For this reason, we would like to ask you questions about your health, family, community integration, employment, education and your day-to-day living.


The Local Authority Integration Team aims to support people to integrate into Ireland by providing


  • Directory of services
  • Signposting to relevant services
  • Information Packs
  • Information Clinics


Referral process: Self-Referral. Individuals can book an appointment with the LAIT via phone, email or on the WCCC website (Website booking system is being created).
