3. One Family Election 2016 Manifesto

One Family calls on all political parties and all candidates running in the General Election 2016 to commit to and live the ideals of our nation’s founders in this historic time of reflection.

One Family was established in 1972 as Cherish, a name taken from the 1916 Proclamation which declared that Ireland would ‘cherish all of the children of the nation equally’. Unfortunately, our vision of creating a just and equal society for all of our nation’s people has yet to be fully realised.

The vast majority of Ireland’s poorest children live in one-parent families without the services, respect or laws to protect and support them to live their lives to their full potential. This needs to change and we need your help to do this.
