History

The Rights Platform is made up of local community and voluntary groups who have a focus on antipoverty and social inclusion across the South Dublin area.

The Platform is a mechanism through which all of these groups can come together to develop and represent the collective voice of those who are most marginalized in the South Dublin area.

The Platform has a specific anti-poverty and equality focus which ensures that the needs and concerns of groups such as people with Disability, Lone Parents, Drug Users, Long Term Unemployed, Women, Travellers, Refugees and Asylum Seekers, Homeless People and others are represented at local, County and National level.
