Description:
2010 was a very difficult year for children and families in Ireland. The worsening economic climate, increased unemployment and cuts to income and services all combined to push more families to the edge as they struggled to make ends meet. For families already living in disadvantage, cuts to social welfare meant many families already on the margins saw increased hardship as they struggled to keep up with basic living costs. For many, the impact of the economic crisis meant that all the work they had done to break out of the cycle of poverty was undone. They found themselves once more back in its trap - once more relegated to the sidelines. Services have closed, funding has been cut and the struggle to survive has become even harder. There are whole communities in Ireland today who have never felt the benefit of the boom but are very much suffering the impact of the recession. Being born into in an area of disadvantage can have a direct affect on a child’s future. Children should never be limited by the place of their birth but all too often for the children we work with, that is the sad reality of their lives. Every day in our 42 projects across Ireland, Barnardos staff work with children and families whose lives are marred by poverty and struggle. For the families we work with, their time at Barnardos gives them the opportunity for a brighter future – the reason and where-with-all to hope for change and the skills to make that change happen.
