Adobe PDF format Report to Children on the Public Consultation for the National Children's Strategy | © 2019

This booklet gives the ideas and comments of children and young people on what it is like to grow up in Ireland today and what they consider important for the future. The views of parents, teachers, care workers and other people working in children's services were also sought. All these ideas and comments helped to make the National Children's Strategy, an action plan to make children's lives better over the next 10 years.
