Registration is now open for the Preparatory Workshops for the Social Inclusion Forum (SIF) 2023, hosted by Community Work Ireland (CWI) and the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) Ireland.
Each workshop provides an overview of the Roadmap for Social Inclusion and the workshop themes, and provides the opportunity for civil society, communities and stakeholders to discuss key issues relevant to people experiencing poverty and their representative organisations. Feedback from the workshops will be presented to the opening Plenary of SIF 2023.
The theme of SIF 2023 is Revitalising the Roadmap: Progress and Priorities, and it will focus on four key areas: Children, Older People, Employment and Core Essentials (income adequacy, energy & food poverty).

The SIF is one of the structures that supports the development and implementation of policy to address poverty and social exclusion in Ireland. SIF 2023 provides an important opportunity to discuss the outcome of the midterm review of the Roadmap for Social Inclusion 2020-2025, and to engage with key issues for people experiencing poverty and their representative organisations.
EAPN Ireland and CWI would like to encourage people with direct experience of issues that emerge from the workshops to participate in person at SIF 2023. A small budget is available to support the participation costs of a number of participants in the workshops from unfunded or under-funded groups and unwaged individuals to attend SIF 2023. Further information will be available at the workshops.
