The Housing Crisis

Barnardos is seriously concerned about the scale of the housing crisis now facing many low income families particularly those reliant on social welfare. Many children are experiencing their childhood in overcrowded, unsuitable and insecure accommodation which is affecting their social, emotional and educational development. A greater supply of housing across all tenures must be provided and emergency accommodation significantly enhanced to meet the needs of families.
