Social Inclusion Forum - Wednesday, 14th September 2016,

9.15am – 15.50pm

Chartered Accountants House, 47-49 Pearse St, Dublin 2


Theme: Growing an Inclusive Recovery

This year’s Social Inclusion Forum (SIF) will take place on Wednesday 14th September 2016. This event is part of the institutional framework put in place by the Government to support the development of the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion), recently updated for the period 2015-2017.

The event provides a forum for wider public consultation and discussion on social inclusion issues between officials from Government Departments, Community and Voluntary Organisations and people experiencing poverty in relation to NAPinclusion. The Forum has ensured that people who are directly affected by poverty and social exclusion and those who work with them have a voice in the development of the policies that directly affect them, and in the ways that the policies are implemented. 

See Publications for previous Social Inclusion Forum Reports and all Social Inclusion Division publications.
