Barnardos. (2010). Reality of Life for Children and Families Struggling with Recession. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/669
Barnardos services across Ireland are seeing daily the impact of the recession on children
and families, many of whom are struggling to cope against a backdrop of reduced household
income and widespread cuts to public services. Many of these families were already
struggling before the recession and the current national economic climate is exacerbating
what was already a dire situation for many children. The accumulative affect of closures and
cutbacks has resulted in an increase in demand for many public services along with an
application of a higher threshold for assessment of need which correspondingly impacts
negatively on all aspects of family life.
