ATD Ireland are beneficiaries of the Europe for Citizens Programme. We were so pleased to attend a Dublin event on 3 March 2016 as part of their Our Voices 2017 project. Participants from Spain, Poland and Dublin gathered at Pavee Point to share their stories of social exclusion. Homelessness, addiction and poor health surfaced as just some of the issues faced by all, despite cultural and geographical differences.
This project aims to deepen discussions on the future of Europe, exploring the idea of an inclusive social Europe. ATD works with those affected by chronic poverty. Read about other Irish-based projects on our website or follow our stories on Twitter.
