Foróige, Ireland's largest youth organisation, welcomes the announcement of the upcoming Children's Referendum and is supporting a ‘Yes’ vote on the 10thof November.

Seán Campbell, CEO Foróige said:

"Article 42A is exclusively concerned with the rights of the child and this amendment to our constitution will help protect vulnerable children and young people in particular. We also welcome the fact that the referendum will be held on a Saturday as we believe that this will impact positively on the number of younger voters who will exercise their democratic right"



Foróige is the leading and largest youth organisation in Ireland. The charity works with 60,000 young people and 5,500 adult volunteers annually, through a network of more than 600 youth clubs & cafés, 154 targeted projects and national programmes such as Citizenship, Entrepreneurship and Leadership.
