Information for Students

If you're doing a project on poverty or a topic related to poverty, there's lots of information on our website to help you:

  • Facts about poverty is a good place to start - it gives you the facts and figures and explains what poverty is and how it affects people in Ireland today
  • Our publications site has lots of stuff you can download for free on issues related to poverty such as homelessness, educational disadvantage and health inequality
  • Our website and publications use a lot of terms you might not be familiar with - the glossary should help you understand what they mean. If you need help with explaining jargon or with anything else on our site, email us at
