Despite a number of financial supports for families with children,child poverty persists at a stubbornly high level in Ireland relative to its European neighbours. It is therefore appropriate to review existing Government policies that aim to have a positive impact on children’s wellbeing, and compare the levels of support in Ireland with those found elsewhere, both within the EU and internationally.

This Policy Statement presents a comparative analysis of child support packages in 22 industrialised countries, focusing on the Irish context. Policies that can reduce the persistently high levels of child poverty in Ireland are highlighted. The Statement focuses primarily on income
support measures and services for families with children as key policy mechanisms. Some of the key findings are outlined.
