The cost-of-living crisis continues to have a significant impact on households, hitting those on low-incomes hardest. This event focused on the social and economic inequalities that currently exist, with a panel of four speakers.  The panel and attendees then considered solutions going forward.  The chair was Ciara Fitzpatrick (Ulster University), and the event was organised by Alexandra Chapman (ARK).

The event was dedicated to Professor Eileen Evason, who previously worked within the Ulster University Social Policy team for almost 30 years and was a lifelong campaigner for equality and women’s rights.
