Working towards an Ireland where every family is cherished equally.

Every three years, One Family sets out its goals and objectives for the short-term future in a strategic plan. Our current strategy runs until 2018.

We want Ireland to have achieved the following by 2020:

  • The Constitution and legislature will recognise and respect the rich diversity of all family forms and structures in Ireland today;
  • The necessary family support services will be available for people parenting alone, sharing parenting, and separating;
  • Poverty rates for children in one-parent families will be dramatically reduced and comparable to that of the general population; and
  • One-parent families will be widely recognised, understood and celebrated as positive family forms.
