To inform Barnardos’ Rise Up campaign, we commissioned Indecon International Economic Consultants to examine the scale and depth of inequality in Ireland and its impact on children. Particular attention was paid to the themes of economic inequality, child development, education, health and the environment. The Indecon research team examined and analysed a broad range of data from a variety of sources. The key findings are presented in this report and provide an independent, evidence-based assessment of childhood inequality in Ireland.
