Sinn Féin - On Your Side

A Budget to Tackle the Cost of Living Crisis

23 September, 2022

This document outlines Sinn Féin’s proposals for Budget 2023 that prioritises giving workers and families a break in the face of an unprecedented cost of living crisis. Our proposals would support households through the winter months by reducing electricity prices; rolling out cost of living payments to assist with other energy costs; protecting the most vulnerable; reducing the cost of fuel; cutting childcare fees and supporting renters. While supporting households through the cost of living crisis, our proposals also aim to address the failures in housing, health, climate, disability services and supports by delivering genuinely affordable homes; putting dignity, respect and fairness at the heart of our healthcare service; implementing a fair plan to tackle climate change and ensuring that people with disabilities and those who care for them are no longer treated as an afterthought.
