Women and Social Protection

The Social Protection system is of crucial importance to women vulnerable to, or living in, poverty. Social Protection payments respond to a wide range of need and entitlement and include:

  • Jobseekers Allowance & Benefit
  • Secondary Benefits
  • Pensions
  • Child Benefit
  • Maternity Benefit

NWCI seeks to ensure each is set at a level that enables women to have an adequate income. We regularly seek to influence the Department of Social Protection in relation to social welfare rates.
