#21 | June Tinsley of Barnardos Ireland

In this episode of Sparking Change, we speak to June Tinsley, Head of Advocacy and Support Engagement at Barnardos Ireland, about the charity’s new LOST CHILDHOOD campaign, highlighting that 1 in 7 children are lost to homelessness – a shocking statistic – though she mentions that this is probably an underestimate. Families in the highest need are often those who find it most difficult to access the necessary care; making support services more easily available to families would give children a better outcome. Dil and June discuss the parent-child bond and how, when nurtured, the repercussions for the child can be phenomenal.
