Mayo Intercultural Action aims to promote the positive effects of interculturalism in Irish society. We would like to see an open, just and equal Ireland where human rights and cultural differences are respected and where new Irish communities are afforded equal rights and opportunities.
What is MIA?

•to provide support and advocacy for migrants living and working in County Mayo
•to give a voice to asylum seekers who are in hostel accommodation in Mayo under Direct Provision
•to help people who have been granted residency in the County to find opportunities for training, education and employment
•to offer a safe and welcoming space where people seeking a new life in Ireland can take part in social activities, meet people in a similar situation and be informed about their rights and entitlements
