The Children’s Rights Alliance today launched their tenth annual Report card.
‘The Government is awarded an overall ‘C-‘ grade in Report Card 2018, reflecting a satisfactory attempt, with children still left wanting. This is an increase on last year’s D+ grade. The highest individual grade in Report Card 2018 is a ‘B’ for ‘Child Protection’, with the lowest grade being awarded for ‘Child and Family Homelessness’, receiving an ‘E’, unchanged since last year. Two sections received a ‘D+’ grade, which indicates a barely acceptable performance, with little or no positive impact or children: ‘Traveller and Roma Children’; ‘Refugee and Asylum-Seeking Children’; The Children’s Rights Alliance acknowledges the important groundwork that has been carried out in a number of areas, but it is clear that much more must be done. We look forward to seeing greater progress over the coming year.’
