Building a Social Inclusion Agenda for County Meath
Social Inclusion has been defined by the EU Commission and Council for Social Inclusion as “the process which ensures that those at risk of poverty and social exclusion gain the opportunities and resources necessary to participate fully in economic, social and cultural life and to enjoy a standard of living and well-being that is considered normal in the society in which they live.” The role of Meath Partnership in promoting social inclusion and quality of life within county Meath is best defined through the aims of programmes and services we provide.
