Cork City Council launches comprehensive report on Social Inclusion

  On Wednesday 19th December 2012  at an event in the Clarion Hotel Cork, Cork City Council launched 
Building co-ordination around communities and local needs: the future of a more inclusive Europe.

This report is the culmination of extensive research carried out by the Social Inclusion Unit of the Council  on the delivery of services in Cork City and the perception of its effectiveness by end users and service delivery agencies.
It makes recommendations around improving and strengthening local service delivery, building on existing co-ordinating structures to be more effective and efficient. It also makes recommendations at a strategic policy level.
The publication is the Social Inclusion Unit’s contribution to the European project “Ireland in Social Europe: Challenging Perceptions, Changing Realities” led by the European Anti-Poverty Network Ireland and was approved by Cork City Development Board in 2012.  It marks the culmination of the research work the Social Inclusion Unit has carried out in the past two and a half years.
