Barnardos Chidren's Budget 2018 (Pre-Budget Submission)

Barnardos. (ND). Barnardos Children's Budget 2018 (Pre-Budget Submission).
While the economic recovery is clearly evidenced in some sections of society, there are many others who are still struggling to catch up due to the combination of inadequate public services and persistent cycles of poverty and deprivation. Barnardos has been a long-time proponent that the solution to tackle child poverty is a combination of increased availability of quality public service and sufficient household income. For a child, their life chances should not be largely determined by where you live and your family household income but until Ireland addresses its growing inequality levels it will unfortunately remain the case. Thereby failing to capitalise on and encourage each individual child’s innate potential.
