IRELAND HAS POOR RANKING IN CHILD AND HOME CARE

The Minister for Social Protection says it’s disappointing that Ireland ranks among the worst in Europe for meeting people’s child and home care needs.

A new ESRI report found Ireland has the fourth-highest level of unmet needs for childcare and the second-highest rate for home care.

It found cost to be the main barrier to childcare for families, while the availability was the biggest problem for those seeking home care services.
