Budget 2023 must assist in creating an equal Ireland 

Government must do the right thing and target resources towards people on low and fixed incomes says charity 

The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) is seeking a commitment from Government that the forthcoming budget will assist in creating an equal Ireland.
