The Department of Social Protection, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, the Department of Education & Skills and the Children’s Rights Alliance, in conjunction with the European Institute of Public Administration, are hosting a seminar on child poverty/investing in children that will be informed by commitments contained in the National Policy Framework for Children and Young People, particularly the child specific target for poverty reduction and the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007 -2016.
