Print page

The Office for Social Inclusion, established in December 2002, took over the functions of NAPS unit. The Office has the overall responsibility for developing, co-ordinating and driving Ireland's National Action Plan for Social Inclusion (NAPinclusion).The new Plan was published on 21 February 2007 and covers the ten year period between 2007-2016.

The NAPinclusion, together with the social inclusion elements of the National Development Plan, sets out how the Government's social inclusion strategy will be achieved over this period. It reflects the Government's commitment to a coherent strategy for social inclusion based on the lifecycle approach set out in the National Partnership Agreement Towards 2016. This will support a joined-up and multi-disciplinary approach to policy making, with coordinated inputs from a wide range of actors.
