Annual Budget Submissions and Government Strategies

We regularly submit our policy recommendations to Government, based on the experience of meeting and assisting people in their homes, or through our services.

Every year we submit to relevant Government Departments on policies we want to see in the next annual budget. Social welfare, education and employment, energy, health and housing are regular budget issues for us.

We also respond to other consultations, from National Development Plans to Active Citizenship to International Aid.
