Early Years eNews: Issue 1

As we await the outcome of General Election 2016, Barnardos is asking politicians to make children their priority and calling for concrete action in five areas of a child’s life: first year of life, early years, education, health and housing. We are demanding change that will have an immediate and real impact on lives as part of a broader strategy to end societal inequality that unfairly affects children. In this issue of Early Years eNews we bring you details of a report outlining the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child's verdict on Ireland and the results are clear: we could do much better. There is also information about the report on Affordable and Quality Childcare from the Joint Committee on Health and Children and a new children's participation hub database.
