Workshop 3: Collective Action fro Change – Developing Participative and successful Campaign Strategies.. Workshop 4: A Campaign in Action: Campaign for Progressive Tax Reform.. Conclusion.. Mary Jackson, Chairperson, Mayo Community Platform.. E.. On 19 October 2010, Mayo Community Platform organised a conference in Castlebar, County Mayo to explore effective strategies and approaches to address social exclusion in a changing Ireland.. The Conference, which was appropriately titled "Working for Change", set out to facilitate reflection on the nature of poverty and social exclusion in County Mayo and nationally; to create opportunities for the sharing of learning; to profile models of good practice; to discuss the role of the community and voluntary sector in addressing poverty and social exclusion; and to identify key messages for policy development in respect of poverty and social exclusion.. While there was a particular focus on the role of the Community and Voluntary sector, the scope of the conference was much broader, seeking to identify and share strategies for addressing poverty and social exclusion.. This linked with the EU Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion as a means of encouraging dialogue on the problems and challenges posed by poverty, social exclusion and inequality.. It also served as a way of highlighting that there are resources in communities that can provide support to individuals, families, groups and whole communities.. There were 150 participants at the conference, which brought together beneficiaries and practitioners (and future practitioners) from community and voluntary sector programmes and policy makers from local and national agencies.. This report of the day‟s proceedings opens with a summary of the key messages arising from the conference.. These messages are important and clear, and I hope that both policy makers and practitioners will take note of them, whether in community organisations, Government departments or agencies.. The second section of this report presents the keynote speeches.. The speeches by Anastasia Crickley and Therese Ruane set the wider context for the conference, respectively the national and local perspectives on poverty and inequality.. Pat Bennet highlighted the contribution of programmes supported by the Family Support Agency to the promotion of social inclusion, illustrating the contribution at local level by the Family and Community Services Resource Centre Programme.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 4 -.. The remainder of the report gives the proceedings of the four workshops, which formed the core of the day‟s activities.. Four themes were explored in the workshops:.. 1: Value and Role of Community Development in Tackling Poverty and Social Exclusion.. 2: Using the Legal System to Tackle Poverty and Inequality.. 3: Collective Action for Change: Developing Participative and Successful Campaign Strategies.. 4: A Campaign in Action: Campaign for Progressive Tax Reform.. Each workshop included presentations of examples of work from the practitioners of programmes/activities that assist in addressing poverty and social exclusion.. Each workshop also allowed time for discussion on the challenges facing communities and on suggestions for positive change, to help promote anti poverty and social inclusion more effectively.. I would like to add my voice to the many participants at the conference who noted the importance of co-ordination amongst the community and voluntary sector.. Not only was the conference itself an example of cooperation and the sharing of learning, but also I hope that it will stimulate the participants and those who read the report to engage in further co-operation.. Special thanks must go to the steering group in Mayo Community Platform that organised the conference, to all the speakers at the conference and to the staff in each of the organisations who helped with administration.. I would like to thank all those who came to the conference and who made it such a success, and I would like to thank the EU Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion for providing financial support and for making the conference possible.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 5 -.. Key Messages from the Conference.. The main aim of the conference was to explore poverty and social exclusion in the changing economic environment of today, looking at ways to.. improve practice within the community and voluntary sector in order that „working for change‟ impacts on the wider policy and practice contexts.. During the day‟s discussion there was a particular focus on the role of the Community and Voluntary sector in seeking to identify and share strategies for addressing poverty and social exclusion.. The conference analysed a wide range of poverty and social exclusion concerns, and the key messages that emerged during the conference have implications for many aspects of Government policy and for many different organisations working in addressing poverty and social exclusion.. The conference drew together stakeholders from the community and voluntary sector, academics, practioners, community programme participants, students and funders – all with an interest in poverty and social exclusion.. In particular the discussion at the conference drew on the breadth of experience of the many beneficiaries and practitioners present on the day – community groups, partnerships, voluntary organisations, LEADER Companies, national academic and support agencies – as well as Mayo Community Platform‟s own experience.. In synthesising the main findings of the conference, four key messages emerged:.. Key Messages:.. 1.. Community work and initiatives play a vital role in empowering individuals, families and communities and in supporting community action.. 2.. The Community and Voluntary Sector play an important role in promoting social inclusion, equality and anti poverty measures.. The sector must be protected.. 3.. People in positions of poverty and inequality and those who work with them should have access to legal information.. Only then can they vindicate their rights and begin to identify scope for change.. Whether by way of a law reform submission or a legal challenge, the law is a tool by which to hold the State to account and through which to advocate social change to improve people’s lives.. 4.. Develop the community and voluntary sector’s understanding of taxation so that they have the confidence to discuss taxation and propose change that effectively addresses poverty and social exclusion.. 5.. If the community and voluntary sector is to be effective it must articulate very carefully what it is it wants to change and expose the State’s role in that regard.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 6 -.. Working for Change:.. Creating a More Equal and Just Ireland.. Anastasia Crickley.. Therese Ruane.. In this presentation the stage was set for the conference discussion by exploring a number of aspects of social exclusion in the context of a changing Mayo.. Therese provided:.. o.. An overview of County Mayo and Mayo Community Platform.. Reference to the contribution of volunteering to community and community work.. A definition of poverty with particular reference to rural poverty.. Examples of poverty using socio–economic factors and their implications for social exclusion and equality.. Profile of County Mayo.. County Mayo is the third biggest county in Ireland and has a population of 123,800.. It also has the third biggest poverty indicator.. Issues that the population is grappling with include: poor service provision, rural isolation, unemployment, emigration, decline in those farming and sustained decline of people living in the countryside.. Mayo Community Platform.. Mayo Community Platform is a collective of community and voluntary organisations who together work to:.. Identify and challenge the causes of poverty, inequality and social exclusion  ...   which indicated that young volunteers tend to be active in projects with a political focus and older people tend towards more practical volunteer tasks.. Key Messages for Mayo Community Platform from Workshop 1:.. Mayo Community Platform should highlight that:.. Budgets allocated to community sector organisations are too short-termed focused and not suitable to the community development approach nor to implement or sustain community development adequately.. The Community sector‟s identification and analysis of poverty and social exclusion is crucial in proving the need for supports, services and strategies in addressing poverty and social exclusion.. Workshop 2.. Using the Legal System to Tackle Poverty and Social Exclusion.. Jo Kenny.. Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC) –.. Public Interest Law Alliance Project.. This workshop focused on the work of the Public Interest Law Alliance.. Its objective is to promote the use of law in the public interest for the benefit of those experiencing marginalisation and disadvantage.. The project has developed a pro bono ("for free") initiative by which legal need within the NGO sector is delivered.. It seeks to make legal information more readily accessible and address unmet legal need.. The project does this through:.. Legal education.. : By providing staff training on areas of law directly relevant to people they serve.. Law Reform.. : Assist organisations in addressing a gap in legislation or ensuring the legislation is constitution or human rights compliant.. Litigation/Using the Courts.. : Litigating systemic socio-economic issues through the domestic courts by identifying – unlawful differences of treatment between groups i.. e.. inequality, lack of fair procedures and failures in administration.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 12 -.. The workshop highlighted whatever way you are using the legal system it should not be used in isolation.. An effective campaign for change must also include grassroots movement; positive, well-timed media and information campaign, which persuades public and political opinion.. In other words,.. Key Messages for Mayo Community Platform from Workshop 2:.. There is a lack of information on how the law can be used in addressing poverty and social exclusion.. Barriers to this include the high cost of legal support and advice.. There is a need for legal training for organisations that work with those experiencing poverty and social exclusion.. Mayo Community Platform should identify a common issue; unify groups across the community and voluntary sector and look for accountability from the State through the legal route if appropriate.. The Platform should seek to expand FLAC‟s pilot project beyond its current geographical area.. Workshop 3.. A Campaign for Action: Campaign of Progressive Tax Reform.. Anne Costello.. Community Platform.. The National Community Platform has launched its recommendations for progressive tax reform that includes four realistic proposals that, if implemented, would generate approximately €3billion.. This revenue would potentially address the Government deficit but will also, crucially, maintain spending power and provide a much needed stimulus to the economy.. Moreover, it is socially just and would ensure that all citizens pay proportionately according to their ability to pay through a progressive tax system.. Key Message for Mayo Community Platform from Workshop 3:.. The workshop highlighted that tax is not a bad thing.. It is necessary to educate people on all the taxation opportunities (it‟s not only income tax), break down the jargon, simplify taxation so that people have the confidence to discuss taxation and propose change.. Mayo Community Platform should organise an event focusing on taxation and invite ministers and relevant bodies to attend to discuss taxation.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 13 -.. Workshop 4.. Collective Action for Change – Developing Participative and Successful Campaign Strategies.. Helen Lowry.. Migrants Rights Centre.. Ireland.. This workshop highlighted the importance of developing campaign strategies amongst community and voluntary sector organisations in addressing poverty and social exclusion.. The workshop focused on the key ingredients of a successful campaign including:.. Developing a clear message (and the need to ask if it is cost effective and if it makes a difference),.. The participation of the „participants‟ (i.. those directly affected by the issues) through the telling of their own stories, participation in the media, in discussion fora, through open days and through photographs and images.. Engaging with decision makers, and.. Action.. Key Message for Mayo Community Platform from Workshop 4:.. One of Mayo Community Platform‟s clear messages should be the need to protect community and voluntary boards of management operating within the community and voluntary sector.. Conclusion to the Conference.. Anastasia Crickley closed the conference by stating that the day provided a very useful overview of the concrete and creative activities being delivered within the community and voluntary sector, through the critical questioning and consciousness raising that took place over the day‟s discussions.. She supported the call of the Conference members to:.. Protect participation of volunteers, those affected by poverty and social exclusion and the work of the community and voluntary sector and its ability to work with others to bring about change for those experiencing poverty and social exclusion.. Lessen the use of jargon that disempower and excludes e.. LAPSIS.. To build stronger local and national linkages in tackling poverty and social exclusion.. Finally she complimented the Mayo Community Platform for having the courage to devise and deliver the event.. Poverty and Inequality in Mayo - Working For Change – Conference Report - 14 -..
