Budget 2015: Our Analysis

Barnardos' Pre-Budget Submissions

Budget 2015 is perhaps the most crucial budget in a generation. In it, we will set out a framework for a post-austerity Ireland. The decisions made will shape our economic recovery and reveal how we view this recovery.

We cannot begin to talk about recovery when one in 10 children live in consistent poverty. In our Children's Budget, Barnardos has outlined steps which must be taken to ensure the green shoots of recovery not only benefit the whole of Irish society, but are tailored to support those most affected during the years of austerity.
