Poverty in Ireland

The reason we exist is to fight poverty across Ireland in all its forms.

Our social justice work is about tackling the structures; the root causes of social exclusion. Debt and household budgeting continue to be major issues for many people we help. More appropriate and responsible financial services is part of the solution.

Child poverty remains a scourge that we work with other NGOs to eradicate, and addressing family poverty is key.

To better understand poverty we commission research and we also comment on and feed into research into all aspects of poverty.
