Dear Friends,

Earlier today you will have received notification from us outlining the SWAN Ireland charter, ahead of #GE16. We are asking all those standing in the General Election on 26 February a to endorse the Charter by signing it and committing themselves to this urgent 12-point reform progamme.


You can do your bit to get candidates to endorse the charter by emailing them and sending them to the link to the online petition containing the charter and 12 point reform programme. The petition can be found here:

You can find your local candidates details here:

Make sure to tell the candidates to include their party/affiliation when they sign and tell them why signing the charter is important to you.

SWAN supporters are also asked to support the principles in the Charter.

Thanks for doing your bit for social justice ahead of #GE16. Let us know how you get on and who signs the charter by tweeting us @SWAN_IRL or find us on Facebook at “Social Work Action Network Ireland”.
