Dear colleagues

EAPN Ireland will be hosting the European Minimum Income Network Bus Tour from May 18h-May 21st . Delegates and volunteers from EMIN  Europe  (https://emin-eu.net/ ) will be travelling across European raising awareness and highlighting the importance of minimum incomes schemes and social welfare supports, which benefit and are accessed by the poorest in society. The bus tour arrives in Ireland on May 17th. 

As part of this tour, EAPN Ireland will be hosting free seminars in Limerick, Longford and Dublin. The title of the seminars is as follows: 

“Social Welfare for All? : A Local and European Perspective on Adequacy and Accessibility”

The seminars will include short presentations, representing the national and European view points on social welfare supports and input from those who have had personal experience of the social welfare system.  There will also be a panel response as well as  discussion and debate from the floor. We are hoping for your attendance and participation at the seminars, to ensure that the Irish perspective, both national and local area, is adequately represented and reflected as the bus tours around Europe.
