INOU E-Bulletin Issue 31 February 2018


Welcome to the 31st edition of the INOU’s E-bulletin

We look back at 2017 and discuss what it meant for unemployed people.  In this issue, we also give the INOU view on SILC 2016, and the Action Plan for Education 2018. We look at research on Post Leaving Cert Courses, and a Private Members Bill seeking to introduce a socio-economic status ground into Ireland’s Equality legislation.

The recent removal of the requirement to pay a financial contribution for legal aid in domestic violence cases is explained in a very interesting article from FLAC. An individual member explores the difficulties of being over 50 and unemployed, and Focus on Affiliates is on the Roscrea Jobs Club and the fantastic work they do.  We also showcase some of our Affiliates events: One Family programmes free to parents in one-parent families and IN-VEST, a free IT taster course starting at the end of March with the Ballymun Jobs Centre.
