Description:
This is the fourth report in the series of social portraits of the lifecycle of groups as set out in the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion, 2007 – 2016. In this report we aim to make key facts and figures about several particularly vulnerable groups in Ireland in an accessible way. These groups are: •people living in areas of urban and rural disadvantage; •migrants and ethnic minorities; • the Traveller community; and • the homeless. This information is particularly relevant to policy, including the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion). Some of the NAPinclusion’s aims are to: •build viable and sustainable communities; and • to improve the lives of those people living in areas or situations of poverty. These groups face a particularly high risk of poverty and exclusion and it is difficult to gather the information to draw accurate social portraits of them. This report will show that the features of these groups mean that getting a reliable picture of them through conventional information sources, such as household surveys, is very difficult.
