Eurochild Child Guarantee Taskforce Country Report - Ireland

Recommendations for the Child Guarantee National Action Plan in Ireland

This report is part of 6 country reports which include recommendations for the design and implementation of the Child Guarantee National Action Plans in Bulgaria; Germany; Greece; Ireland; Italy; and Spain.

Main Recommendations by Taskforce Ireland:

  • The National Coordinator of the European Child Guarantee should be a central component of a fully resourced child poverty office established jointly between the Department of Children and the Department of Social Protection;
  • The DCEDIY should draw on the resources of the participation unit and the guidance in the child participation framework document to ensure that meaningful consultation involving children and young people takes place before, during and in monitoring the National Action Plan. A youth panel could feed into the development and monitoring of the plan at key stages.
