Ireland: Childcare for the homeless scheme will be extended
New Irish News – April 18, 2017
A scheme to provide free childcare for under fives living in emergency accommodation is to be expanded. Fifty-two families have been availing of the service since it was initiated in Dublin last year but Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone has a significant portion of the €8.25m allocated still at her disposal. As a result, the scheme is to be extended to a number of counties including Cork, Cavan, Donegal, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Offaly, Wicklow and Clare.
