Public Accountability Committees Ireland is an organisation dedicated to the principles of democratic representation. We are a socially inclusive organisation, which means our goals include ensuring that the marginalised and those living in poverty have greater participation in decision making which affects their lives, enabling them to improve their living standards and their overall wellbeing.

We are a grassroots association, communities working within communities to deliver a wide range of accountability-focused outcomes. Our mandate is to provide an impartial parity of representation to our members in terms of developing public services, addressing areas where shortfalls in accountability exist, and in maximising the benefit received by members of the community from various sectors.

Our initiatives are flexible and responsive, often developed by members of local communities, extending to high-profile and high-influence private organisations. The ultimate goal of PACs Ireland is to improve the clarity of process that many feel is absent from spending and decision making in Ireland today.
