Barnardos is particularly concerned about the cumulative affect the cuts to social welfare and public services coupled with the imposition of more taxes will have on vulnerable low income families. Larger families (with 3 or more children), lone parent families and rural families are particularly hit in Budget 2012 and we are worried that this will lead to further hardship and greater incidences of poverty and deprivation for children.
