For some time Barnardo’s has been concerned with the problem of children being on the streets in Dublin in at risk or vulnerable situations. To investigate the problem first hand two child care workers, over a period of six weeks in October/November 1996, were asked to spend time on the streets and to assess the situation. This document summarises their findings and outlines the types of services Barnardo’s feels are necessary to tackle the problem. During their investigation the child care workers established that there were two different problems emerging - one during the day and the second at night. Information is presented on these separately.
