"Public Consultation for new National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2018 - 2021

The National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007-2016 (NAPinclusion) identified a wide range of targeted actions and interventions to support the overall objective of achieving the National Social Target for Poverty Reduction (NSTPR). The Plan adopted a life-cycle approach with goals set for each group: children; people of working age; older people and communities.

The Plan was updated for the period 2015 - 2017 to reflect the current issues and interventions to tackle poverty. There was a greater focus on modernising the social protection system, improving effectiveness and efficiency of social transfers and strengthening active inclusion policies. The Programme for Partnership Government includes a commitment to develop a new Integrated Framework for Social Inclusion, to tackle inequality and poverty.

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is in the early stages of developing the new National Action Plan/Integrated framework and would like to hear your views.

If you would like to take part in the public consultation process which is accessible online through Surveymonkey, please click OK to start. Please note that the consultation period is for 4 weeks ending on Friday 16 March 2018. "
