About Us

Combat Poverty was established under the Combat Poverty Agency Act 1986, which set out our four general functions: policy advice, project support and innovation, research and public education. For more information on the history and work of Combat Poverty go to our history page.

On 1 July 2009 Combat Poverty was integrated with the Office for Social Inclusion to form the Social Inclusion Division in the Department of Social and Family Affairs. On 1 May 2010 the Social Inclusion Division transferred to the Department of Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs.
