Social Welfare Law Reform Campaigns
In October FLAC launched a report that recommends comprehensive reform of Ireland's system of processing appeals on refusals of social welfare applications. Entitled Not Fair Enough, the report is a legal analysis of how the appeals system meets basic human rights standards on issues like fairness, transparency and access to justice. It also presents findings from a survey of advocates who help people to make appeals on payments, which indicates systemic change is needed.
The government will soon report to the UN on how it is meeting its legal duties to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of people in ireland in areas like health, education, social security, housing, cultural life and family . Help us tell the real story on rights in Ireland today!
There are no past campaigns.
