Why Vote YES on November 10th?

Why Vote YES on November 10th in the Children's Referendum?

Reforming Adoption Law

Voting YES on Saturday November 10th will guarantee all children are treated equally under adoption law, and will make it easier for children in long-term foster care to be adopted. It will ensure that every child will be given a second chance of a loving home through adoption where their first home experience has failed.

Bringing Equality

Voting YES on Saturday November 10th means every child will be treated equally in the law on adoption. Every child will have their best interests taken into account. Every child will have a say in court proceedings affecting the most important parts of their lives.

Protecting Children

Voting YES on Saturday November 10th will protect the most vulnerable children – where there is clear evidence of abuse, child protection services will be able to act quickly to make children safe. The impact of any problems within the family upon the child's safety and welfare will be the primary consideration in managing cases.

Supporting Families

Voting YES on Saturday November 10th will support families. It will not affect the central role of parents as primary caregivers. But, when a family is in trouble, early intervention and family support
services can prevent more serious problems. Vote YES to ensure the State's intervention supports the family.

Changing our Constitution

Voting YES on Saturday November 10th is vital because this referendum is for every person in Ireland, now and in the future. It will secure the protection of all children in Ireland, not just in our value system, but will enshrine it in the governing document of our nation.
