The Children’s Rights Alliance awarded the Government an overall ‘D+’ grade in our Report Card 2017 yesterday. This year’s grade equates to a barely acceptable performance, having little or no positive impact on children’s lives and securing no outstanding achievements yet.

The Report Card is our annual publication that considers how the Government has, or has not, implemented its own commitments to children in important areas like health, education, poverty, equality, protection and early years.

As always, our independent panel of experts graded the Government’s performance, chaired by Judge Catherine McGuinness, former Supreme Court Judge.
