Some further information on Barnardos
Barnardos goal is to make Ireland the best place in the world to be a child. Every day in our 40 projects across Ireland we work with almost 6,000 children and families whose lives are marred by issues such as poverty, neglect and educational disadvantage. We work with children of different ages and support them and their families in various aspects of their lives.
The problem is not so large that it cannot be solved. Barnardos is urging the government to look at investing in early intervention and prevention measures so that we’re not trying to solve problems after they spiral out of control. All the research shows that the return on investing in a child early is huge. With a bit of support early in their lives, children are more likely to stay in school, get a job, stay out of trouble, pay taxes, send their own children to school. It’s a win-win for everyone – for the child, for society and for the economy.
