Of relevance to this topic and at a National Level – EAPN Ireland has launched its research report entitled “More Than just a Temporary Crisis: The growing need for support with basic necessities and the impact on Low-Income Households and the Community and Voluntary Sector”. This report investigates the growing reliance on community organisations and charities for support with basic necessities (e.g., food, heating, hygiene products etc.), and the effects that this has on individuals, households, and on the Community and Voluntary sector itself.
