The Roadmap for Social Inclusion 2020-2025: Ambition, Goals, Commitments is the national strategy for poverty reduction and improved social inclusion. It aims to “reduce consistent poverty to 2% or less and to make Ireland one of the most socially inclusive countries in the EU”. The Roadmap translates this ambition into seven goals underpinned by 66 unique commitments to be taken to help deliver these goals.
The Roadmap commits that “an independent mid-term review of the Roadmap will be undertaken in 2022.” The Department of Social Protection has contracted Ipsos to undertake the public consultation aspect of this review.
The purpose of the review is to evaluate progress in implementation, assess the Roadmap ambition, goals and commitments in the current environment, and examine the existing Roadmap indicators.
