Commission On Social Welfare

Commission On Social Welfare

The Commission on Social Welfare (CSW) was a commission in Ireland that from 1983 to 1986 reviewed social welfare in the country. Social security policy between 1987 and 1994 was heavily influenced by the findings of the CSW.

The final report of the Commission recommended raising social welfare payments. For social welfare payments to be adequate, they "must prevent poverty, and in our view poverty must be judged in the light of actual living standards," the report concluded.
