NWCI's Pre-Budget 2018 Submission
This submission is one element of a three-part pre-budget policy process, which also involves a substantive submission made to the Department of Social Protection and a set of detailed letters to the Ministers for Health, Justice and Equality, Rural and Community Affairs and Housing, Planning, and Local Government. An addendum to this submission will list all recommendations made in those letters. The five priorities areas set forth in this submission are done so on the basis of their pressing nature, and opportunities that have arisen over recent months that indicate the potential for substantive change. NWCI’s Budget 2018 priorities are: embedding gender budgeting into the Irish budgetary process, closing the gender pension gap, addressing violence against women, increased investment in State-subsidised childcare and rebuilding the women’s sector.
