We believe everyone should have access to healthcare when needed, a universal public childcare scheme, free education for all.

Care in An Ireland That Works

An Ireland That Works for All means access to healthcare when you need it, not months and years on a waiting list.

As a first step to realising our ambition for a single-tier Irish National Health Service, Labour would commit nearly €900 million of new current spending and €590 million of capital spending in health, starting with major investment in community primary healthcare, disability and mental health services.

Parents need affordable, accessible childcare. That is why Labour are committed to a universal public childcare system and we would begin with a €60 million investment in realising this programme. Childcare professionals also deserve decent pay and conditions, and we would ensure a €12.90 Living Wage and sick pay for childcare workers.

Labour wants well-funded schools, free education, and radical efforts to cut poverty and provide every child with a fair start. We would eliminate child poverty through targeted social welfare increases, cut education costs for parents, and reduce class sizes immediately. We would also drastically reduce fees for third-level students.
