Barnardos. (2017). Faces Behind the Figures of Child Homelessness Briefing Paper February 2017. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/311
Barnardos is very concerned the housing crisis is not abating. Child and family homelessness is gathering pace and the responses and actions of Government, local authorities and agencies are unable to stem this flow. The impact of homelessness on children is far reaching, and affects every element of a child’s development. These children are being robbed of their childhoods and this will have lifelong implications for them and for all of society. Children are the most vulnerable victims of the housing crisis, they are often invisible and the impact of the crisis on them is underestimated.
