EAPN Ireland Pre-budget Submission 2019

EAPN Ireland is calling on the Government to use budget 2019 as a means to follow through on the commitment in the Programme for Government to a “more just and fair society”.

EAPN Ireland is asking the government to implement progressive anti-poverty measures under the following headings:

  • Taxation and Investment
  • Poverty and Equality Impact Assessment
  • Ensuring adequate social welfare for all
  • Welfare to decent work
  • Housing
  • Asylum seekers
  • Disability related payment


We believe the proposals in our 2019 pre-budget submission provides a template that enables the Government to move closer to lifting people out of poverty and towards the Minimum Essential Standard of Living, as well as honouring commitments to the eradication of poverty and social exclusion as outlined in EU 2020 Strategy, UN Sustainable Development Goals, and European Pillar for Social Rights.
