Aims to reduce the number of people in consistent poverty in Ireland to 2% or less

Family in a field

The Department for Employment Affairs and Social Protection has published its 'Roadmap for Social Inclusion 2020-2025: Ambition, Goals, Commitments'. This sets out the Government’s ambition for Ireland to become one of the most socially inclusive States in the EU. It aims to reduce the number of people in consistent poverty in Ireland to 2% or less and to position Ireland within the top five countries in the EU under a number of leading social inclusion measures.  
 
Previous action plans for social inclusion focused on the avoidance or reduction of poverty. The Roadmap retains this core objective and goes further.  It expands the ambition of what the State should seek to achieve by concentrating on improving social inclusion. This recognises that a person’s well-being is not something that can be measured simply by reference to relative income measures but needs to be considered in the round – taking account of housing, health, community, education and family considerations.
