The Direct Provision system operates to accommodate people who have sought protection in the state, often referred to as asylum-seekers. People are accommodated for long periods within the Direct Provision system as they are awaiting the outcome of applications being processed by the State. There are significant delays in the processing system which results in many families spending up to seven years living within Direct Provision. Unfortunately the system of Direct Provision is not a natural environment for children to live, it enforces poverty, and causes social exclusion. Prolonged periods spent within Direct Provision results in the deskilling of adults as they do not have the right to work, or access education.The long term effects of living without the liberty to make choices in their daily lives results in serious challenges to reintegrate into society in Ireland or elsewhere.
