Description:
Following an extensive review and consultation process, the Government in early 2002 published its revised National Anti-Poverty Strategy (NAPS) document, entitled "Building an Inclusive Society". This provides a new framework for tackling poverty and social exclusion and was undertaken in consultation with the Social Partners, as part of the commitments under the Programme for Prosperity and Fairness. 1.2 The overall objectives of this new Strategy are to reduce to 2% and, ideally, eliminate consistent poverty, build an inclusive society and develop social capital, particularly within disadvantaged communities. In addition, the Strategy includes health and housing and accommodation as new themes in the NAPS; identifies vulnerable groups, including women, children and young people, older people, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities for particular focus and consideration; and establishes new targets. The revised NAPS also identifies some new institutional structures and arrangements to underpin implementation of the Strategy. These structures and arrangements are seen as of critical importance and are designed to put the poverty and social inclusion agenda at the centre of public life in this country. The NAPS Social Inclusion Forum was established by the Government as a part of these new institutional structures and it will be convened annually by the National Economic and Social Forum (NESF). The inaugural meeting of the NAPS Forum took place in the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham on 30th January 2003. A copy of the Programme for the meeting is contained in Appendix 1 of this report. This was carefully structured and organised so as to allow for and seek to ensure as full involvement and participation as possible by the very wide range of delegates that attended.
