Barnardos Analysis of the Programme for Government

Barnardos. (2011). Barnardos Analysis of the Programme for Government.
The Programme for Government presented by Fine Gael and Labour aims to build a new Ireland built on fairness and equal citizenship where the vulnerable are protected and the burden sharing will be done on an equitable basis. Overall, Barnardos welcomes many of the proposals in the Programme for Government. Like all policy proposals, their merit is only seen when implemented, so Barnardos urges this new Government to live up to the old adage that ‘actions speak louder than words’, as they lead Ireland out of recession.
