Inequality stalks the lives of looked-after children – Brogan | Sinn Féin

Sinn Féin – On Your Side

2 December, 2020

Sinn Féin MLA Nicola Brogan has said looked-after children and adults who have experienced care can face inequality throughout their lives. 
The party’s spokesperson for children and young people said:
“By every count, health, wealth and wellbeing, looked-after children fare worse, with data showing disproportionate levels of ill health, lower wages and higher levels of unemployment.
“There is a moral obligation for the state to improve the lives of children in their care. 
“Policy makers and service providers must do better. 
“The Children’s Co-operation Act places a duty on departments and agencies to work together and pool resources to secure improvements.”
