Children are growing up feeling hopeless and helpless.
The impact of consecutive austerity budgets has put
substantial pressure on their families. Parents are coping
with overwhelming stress and anxiety and Barnardos
is seeing increased levels of anxiety in children as well.
Austerity is raising a generation of children who can’t see
hope in their future because they don’t believe that their
education will help them get jobs and live well in Ireland.
The ongoing impact is damaging our society and will
continue to do so long into the future.
