You are very welcome to the website of Pobal. I believe that the work of Pobal is of great importance in promoting social inclusion in Ireland today. Through the programmes, which we manage on behalf of Government Departments, we contribute to the inclusive and sustainable development of diverse communities throughout the country and in particular those communities in disadvantaged areas.

Our work contributes to the enablement of these communities to play their part in building an active, vibrant, economically sound and inclusive society and to participate in and achieve the targets set out in Government strategies: The programme for government - Government for National Recovery 2011-2016; the Action Plan for Jobs 2012, Pathways to Work and the Comprehensive Review of Expenditure.  I invite you to explore our website and discover the many ways in which Pobal can work for you on behalf of the Irish Government.

    Chairperson, Pobal
