Have Your Say Budget 2018

June 12, 2017

ECI Members’ Consultations

What would you do with an extra €200 million, €100 million, or €50 million in Budget 2018? How would the amount of money available affect your priorities? What do the changes we want to see, for example additional non-contact time in ECCE and Affordable Childcare actually cost? These are the questions we will be asking members as part of our consultation series Have Your Say Budget 2018. This is a very important conversation that will set the direction for ECI’s Budget 2018 submission to Government.  There is nobody better placed to guide ECI in our work than you, our members and we encourage you attend and participate in the process.

The Have Your Say Budget 2018 consultation meetings with Teresa Heeney, CEO;  Frances Byrne, Director of Policy and Advocacy; and Amy McArdle, Policy Officer.
