A Poverty Profile of Co. Kildare

The National Anti-Poverty Strategy (NAPS) and the National Action Plan against Poverty and Social Exclusion (NAPs/Inclusion) map the way in which we will work towards the EU target of mitigating poverty by 2010. Therefore, it is important to connect national policies on poverty and social inclusion with the work of those on the front line of service delivery at a local level. Local authorities are identified as having a key role in supporting the implementation of both strategies. Nationally, the Social Inclusion Measures (SIM) working groups of the County Development Board (CDB)s have been encouraged to produce local anti-poverty strategies. This Poverty Profile was requested by the Kildare CDB in 2006 as part of the development of a Local Anti Poverty Strategy (LAPS). The LAPS was an action identified in the review of the Kildare 2012 strategy. The responsibility was given to the SIM working group to oversee the development of the Poverty Profile and subsequent Strategy. This Poverty Profile is the first step in the process of achieving a LAPS for Co. Kildare. It identifies the situation in relation to poverty and social exclusion in the county and will inform the local anti-poverty strategy.
