The NDA welcomes the opportunity to contribute a submission on the development of a new child poverty target in Ireland. Of particular interest to the NDA is the reduction of poverty among children impacted, directly or indirectly, by disability, and so this submission responds to the following question in the Consultation Guidance Document:
