Single parent working families are being ignored by the State, it was claimed on Tuesday.

A “shameful” report revealed their poverty levels have doubled in the last five years.

St Vincent de Paul claims lone parents are struggling to make ends meet, with nearly a fifth caught in mortgage or rent arrears.

People Before Profit Dublin South TD Brid Smith said: “It feels like it’s report after report, with everyone putting forward proposals to tackle the poverty levels of one-parent families, only to be ignored and dismissed by the Government.

“I have written to the chair of the committee of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to call the Minister to a meeting on the findings of this report.

“The finding in this report cannot be ignored, and I call on the Minister to take action to stop this trend of increasing poverty.

The Working, Parenting and Struggling report found the cost of childcare and housing, combined with earning a low wage, are significantly reducing the standard of living for single parents.

Sinn Fein TD John Brady said Social Protection Minister Regina Doherty and her Government need to wake up and face reality.

He said: “It should come as a great shame to this Government the SVP report finds that living standards for lone parents in Ireland are among the worst in Europe.

The Society of the St Vincent de Paul has said that lone parents need to be facilitated to get back into the workplace. The call was made as the society published its study on one- parent families today. There are more than 215,000 one- parent families living in Ireland .

“We have the second highest rates of poverty, persistent poverty and severe deprivation among 15 EU countries.

“This report shows the stark consequences of this fact – more lone parents at work in 2017 were living in poverty than was the case five years previous.”

Sinn Fein has called on Ms Doherty to immediately consider the recommendations in the report in order to ease pressure on lone parents.

Mr Brady said: “There are a number of short-term recommendations in this report which could be taken immediately such as extending the cut off age for the Jobseekers Transition Payment until the youngest child is 18 to assist lone parents in ensuring that they are actually better off at work.”

Fianna Fail TD Willie O’Dea said Fine Gael continues to fail lone parents and found the findings of the report “shameful.”

He added: “They are stark and clearly demonstrate that for many lone parents there is no recovery.

“The statistics released vindicate our opposition to the changes to the One Parent Family Payment, which were brought in by the Fine Gael-Labour coalition.”

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar challenged the report, claiming it doesn’t tell the full story.

He said: “It fell to 23.1% in 2014, a slight increase to 23.9% after that, 23.2% after that and 20.7% in 2017, so the figures we have are down on 2013.

“That demonstrates the policies we have been implementing, helping people get back to work, improving welfare, reducing the cost of childcare, are working.”
