DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

This study was commissioned by The End Child Poverty Coalition, a partnership of seven national non-governmental organisations that promote greater awareness of child poverty and work to effect change in public policy in order to eliminate child poverty in Ireland.

It outlines the UN Convention which provides that every child has the right to an adequate standard of living, which includes adequate income and accommodation, a right to education and health and a right to have access to necessary supports and services - allowing them to experience a childhood free of poverty and deprivation and which enable them to reach their full potential.

The report is delivered in seven sections including: Children Living in Poverty; At Risk Groups; Policy Approaches; Impact of Poverty on Children’s Lives; Case Studies; Government Commitments; The Way Forward; Budget 2006

The study explores all aspects of child poverty outlining its effects on participation in education and its implication on early school leaving.
