A new report by Pobal has underlined the importance of the State valuing and supporting the community, voluntary and not-for-profit sector.

The report – Enabling Inclusive Communities: Achievements, Challenges & Future Directions – followed a series of regional seminars between November 2017 and April 2018 on the theme of ‘enabling inclusive communities: achievements, challenges and future directions’.

The 5 seminars, attended by representatives from 247 organisations, provided an opportunity for Pobal to engage directly with community stakeholders across a range of programmes, while providing a reflective space to identify what was working well and not so well in the context of creating inclusive communities.

The report contains discussions held at the seminars, along with some key messages from participants.
