National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion) 2007-2016 - Ireland
The commitments set out in this Plan are
ambitious and challenging. The new strategic
framework will facilitate greater co-ordination and
integration of structures and procedures across
Government at national and local levels, as well as
improved reporting and monitoring mechanisms.
The National Action Plan for Social Inclusion
(NAPinclusion) has been prepared in a different
context to the original 1997 National Anti-Poverty
Strategy. Income support targets (social welfare
rates and pensions) have now been achieved
and, in line with the National Economic and Social
Council (NESC) report on the Developmental
Welfare State, there is greater emphasis on
services and activation as a means of tackling
social exclusion. This is reflected in the nature
of the Plan, which complements the NDP 2007-
2013 and Towards 2016.
