Description:
The National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007 to 2016 (NAPinclusion), was launched in February 2007. It sets out a wide ranging and comprehensive programme of action to tackle poverty and social exclusion. It uses a lifecycle approach which places the individual at the centre of policy development and delivery by assessing the risks facing him or her and the supports available at key stages of the lifecycle. The lifecycle stages are children, people of working age, older people and people with disabilities. There is also a chapter on communities. The NAPinclusion provides a strategic framework to facilitate greater co-ordination and integration of structures across Government. It sets out a wide-ranging and comprehensive programme of action to assist those who continue to be socially excluded from the living standards and opportunities that the majority enjoy. The plan contains a series of high level goals and targets aimed at making a decisive impact on poverty. They focus on: • Ensuring that children reach their full potential; • Supporting working age people and people with disabilities, through activation measures and the provision of services to increase employment and participation; • Providing the type of supports that enable older people to maintain a comfortable and high-quality standard of living; • Building viable and sustainable communities, improving the lives of people living in disadvantaged areas and building social capital. The overall goal of the NAPinclusion is to reduce the number of those experiencing consistent poverty1 to between 2% and 4% by 2012, with the aim of eliminating it by 2016, from a baseline rate of 7% in 2005. The NAPinclusion prioritises 12 high level goals and identifies some 150 targets across all policy areas, which are at the core of the strategic approach, aimed at making a decisive impact on poverty and building a more inclusive society over the coming years.
