There are children experiencing homelessness in 27 per cent of primary schools in Ireland and there is no Government policy to cater for the educational needs of children who are homeless or living in emergency accommodation. We cannot forget about the needs of those children coming into school from very unsuitable accommodation and overcrowded accommodation, from homes where the parents have problems with addiction or are in prison. And also the specific needs of children in the north inner city whose lives have been affected by the feud. Again, it is the schools and the clubs that are picking up the pieces and providing the supports, it’s time the government implement practical and logical steps to make the burden of living in emergency accommodation less detrimental. Ultimately, however, it is about resolving the housing crisis because then we would not have this issue.
