CitationBarnardos.(2012). Analysis of Budget 2013 from a Children and Families Perspective. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/440
AbstractBarnardos is deeply concerned about the impact the measures outlined in Budget 2013 will have on
children and families across Ireland, particularly those struggling on low incomes. This Budget
belies the Government’s commitment to fairness and equity in the face of recession. The cumulative
effect of cuts to key child related social welfare payments coupled with the imposition of wide
ranging taxes will have a detrimental impact on vulnerable low income families. It will inevitably lead
to greater incidences of poverty and deprivation for children.
