dc.descriptionBarnardos report on a case for constitutional changeen
dc.description.abstractBarnardos’ vision is an Ireland where childhood is valued and all children and young people are cherished equally. As the Irish Constitution is the supreme source of law in Ireland, Barnardos believes that all children deserve to be fully protected by it in their own right rather than seen as a unit of a family. This move would show Ireland’s commitment to valuing and respecting childhood. Barnardos’ mission is to challenge and support families, communities, society and government to make Ireland the best place in the world to be a child, focusing specifically on children and young people whose wellbeing is under threat. It is these children who would benefit most from an express commitment to their rights within the Irish Constitution as it could have a real and positive impact on their lives. Giving a voice to children and ensuring their welfare and protection is crucial to enable children reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives as they progress into adulthood. The advancement of these principles, as enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, forms the cornerstone to the Barnardos’ campaign calling for constitutional reform. An amendment to the Constitution to strengthen the rights of children would have an impact on future legislation and policies, modernise family law and the provision of accessible and appropriate services. All of these combined will contribute to making Ireland the best place in the world to be a child.en
