Regional Seminars as part of Ireland's National Programme for the
2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion
The Community Workers' Cooperative, the European Anti Poverty Network (EAPN) Ireland, with the support of the Community Platform have been contracted by the Social Inclusion Division of the Department of Social and Family Affairs to organise four half-day regional seminars as part of the 2010 European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion. Each regional seminar will address (1) Child poverty (2) Access to quality work and learning opportunities ; (3) Access to services – with a particular focus on older people; (4) People with Disabilities.
The project partners are keen to ensure that as many people experiencing the issues as possible are involved in the seminars and would be glad to work with you to ensure this.
Additional Seminar Added
As a result of the success of the four regional seminars to mark the 2010 EU Year to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion, the Social Inclusion Division have requested the CWC and partners to organise a fifth regional seminar in Donegal in September 2010 (September 28th). This seminar will include an additional workshop (through Irish) on Poverty and Social Exclusion in the Gaeltacht. For further information or to register your interest please email
