Listening to the Voices of Parents

Listening to the Voices of Parents

On 21 March, at an event organised by Barnardos in Leinster House, KHF gave TDs and Senators a preview of  the findings from our recent online survey of parents: Giving Our Children the Best Start in Life.

The five key messages are :

Time Matters, Family Matters, Choice Matters, Money Matters and Supports Matter.

Behind each of these key messages are the rich thoughts of almost 500 parents.

Francis Chance of KHF gave a presentation of the findings which is available here.

A Summary Report and the Full Report will be available by the end of March.
