WITH THIS YEAR’S budget less than two weeks away, TheJournal.ie will be bringing you extensive coverage of Budget 2013, bringing you all the information you need to know – and how to process it.

But how is it going to affect your life – and your pocket? We want to know, and we’d love it if you could help us out.

What are your hopes and fears?

What are the potential cuts that worry you most?

If you would like to be part of our online panel of readers to express how Budget Day is likely to impact on you, read on…

We would like to hear from people in the following groups:

  • Married, working, with children
  • Single and working
  • Single parent
  • Unemployed person
  • Pensioner
  • Living alone, on a disability allowance
  • A full-time carer
  • Owner of a small/medium business
  • Student
  • Cohabiting couple
  • Someone who has emigrated since Budget 2012

How it works

We’ll have a chat with you about your current situation and what your hopes and fears are in the run up to 5 December.

Then, once the bad/good news has been announced, we’ll contact you to get your reaction and to work out how it has actually impacted you.

Please note that you’ll need to be contactable on Budget Day, 5 December.

Still interested?

Email your name, contact number and county in which you live to paul@thejournal.ie if you are happy to be named and have a small headshot photograph of yourself used on TheJournal.ie.

We look forward to hearing from you.
