 Creating an Inclusive Labour Market 
Pobal hosted a one-day, national conference which brought together employment service providers from the statutory, community, local development and private sectors to discuss challenges and good practice regarding the creation of inclusive labour markets in Ireland.  
  
 
The conference aimed to support greater co-ordination between community, statutory, local government and the private sector in creating a more inclusive labour market for disadvantaged groups and communities.
