making everyone count
Our Work @Script
Script - we help immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers access their entitlements in their native language. We want to create a more equal, supportive and language inclusive world for people experiencing communication and information barriers.
Script is a one stop for all, working to provide government forms initially piloting in 5 languages. We additionally will be launching the first eligibility survery in Ireland, for all social welfare forms this June.
We work with translators and improve our platform based on your feedback to deliver the easiest, most accessible way for you to apply for your entitlements !
What strikes us the most is that there are 182 spoken languages in Ireland yet all government services and their forms are only available in English and Irish.
