Description:
The Social Inclusion Forum is part of the institutional structures put in place by the Government to support the development of the National Anti-Poverty Strategy (NAPS). The current strategy is set out in the National Action Plan for Social Inclusion 2007-2016 (NAPinclusion), which covers the same period as the national partnership agreement, Towards 2016. The NAPinclusion also forms a key element of Irish participation in the process of co-operation between EU Member States to combat poverty and social exclusion. 1.2 The Social Inclusion Forum is convened annually by the National Economic and Social Forum (NESF) in collaboration with the Office for Social Inclusion (OSI). It represents a key element of the Government’s commitment to consult with all relevant stakeholders, including people experiencing poverty and the groups that represent them, in the fight against poverty and social exclusion. 1.3 The basic purpose of the Social Inclusion Forum is to provide organisations and individuals that are not directly involved in the social partnership process with the opportunity to: — Input their views on key policies and implementation issues; — Identify barriers and constraints to progress and how best these can be tackled; and — Provide suggestions and proposals for new developments and more effective policies in the future. 1.4 This report provides a summary account of the fourth meeting of the Forum, which took place on 15th November, 2007 in the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Dublin. It includes a summary of the papers that were presented by the two guest speakers at the Plenary Sessions, as well as a summary of the discussions that took place in four parallel workshops and twenty brief roundtable discussions that made up part of the Programme. A copy of the papers and presentations can be obtained from the NESF Secretariat, 16 Parnell Square, Dublin 1, email info@nesf.ie, or from the NESF website at www.nesf.ie. 1.5 This report will be formally submitted to the Cabinet Committee on Social Inclusion, Children and Integration, which is chaired by the Taoiseach.
