Press Statement – Budget 2024

On the eve of Budget 2024 a network of 31 national community and voluntary organisations has called on the Government to urgently address the cumulative impact of the very high cost of living on people, while also addressing ongoing structural weaknesses that create the conditions that enable inequality and poverty to become ingrained and grow in our society.

The Community Platform, a network of 31 national organisations working to address poverty, social exclusion and inequality, has published Four Tests which it will use to assess Budget 2024.
