Barnardos is deeply concerned about the impact the measures outlined in Budget 2013 will have on children and families across Ireland, particularly those struggling on low incomes. This Budget belies the Government’s commitment to fairness and equity in the face of recession. The cumulative effect of cuts to key child related social welfare payments coupled with the imposition of wide ranging taxes will have a detrimental impact on vulnerable low income families. It will inevitably lead to greater incidences of poverty and deprivation for children.
