'Inclusive Growth - Building a Fairer Ireland' 

The Social Inclusion Forum was established by the government as part of the structures to monitor and evaluate the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007- 2016. The Department of Social Protection has been given responsibility by government to convene the Social Inclusion Forum, which is a key element of the government’s commitment to consult with all relevant stakeholders, including people experiencing poverty and the groups that represent them in the fight against poverty and social exclusion. The Forum provides an opportunity for engagement between officials from government departments, community and voluntary organisations and people experiencing poverty. The 2014 Forum was organised with the assistance of the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) Ireland and the Community Worker’s Co-operative (CWC).

The objectives of the 2014 Social Inclusion Forum were to:

  • Review progress on the implementation of Poverty Reduction Target agreed as part of the Europe 2020 Strategy;

  • Input their views on key policies and implementation issues;

  • Identify barriers and constraints to progress and how best these can be tackled;

  • Provide suggestions and proposals for new developments and more effective policies in the future.

This report provides a summary of the 10th meeting of the Forum which took place on Wednesday 1st April 2014 at the Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin
