On 20th May 2010, to mark the first anniversary of the Ryan report, Barnardos and seven other organisations working directly with children or adult survivors of child abuse came together to launch the Saving Childhood Ryan campaign. The other organisations are Children at Risk Ireland, Children’s Rights Alliance, Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, ISPCC, Irish Association of Young People in Care, One in Four and Rape Crisis Network Ireland. The campaign aimed to lobby the Government to implement the Ryan Implementation Plan recommendations which would seriously improve the child protection systems and reduce the risk of harm to children across Ireland. It looked specifically at the progress of ten selected aspects of the Plan, recognising and welcoming where progress has been made while also highlighting the impact of the absence of progress in other areas especially when the agreed timeframes have been passed.
