Budget 2013 – Time to protect marginalised groups.

Pavee Point’s pre-budget 2013 report outlines our recommendations for the upcoming budget.  Travellers and Roma are among the most marginalised groups in Irish society and along with other marginalised groups have been disproportionately impacted by austerity measures.
