New ESRI research finds that relationship breakdown and mothers’ or fathers’ job loss are key triggers for transitions into child poverty. Living in poverty, especially over a protracted period of time, has far-reaching consequences for children’s development and wellbeing. The study is part of a research programme between the ESRI and the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, and is being launched today by Minister O’Gorman.
