The Great Care Co-op – Migrant Rights Centre Ireland

In 2017, MRCI were funded by the European Social Fund to create sustainable employment in home care, and to solve the issues facing migrant home care workers in Ireland, particularly issues of poor working conditions and low pay. Their solution was to set up The Great Care Co-op, together with a group of 9 migrant women experienced at working in the care sector.
As it is a not-for-profit social enterprise, all profit is invested back into the organisation for staff training and to provide quality care.
