Launch of the EU Child Guarantee and the EU Strategy on Rights of the Child

child poverty

On 24 March the European Commission launched two milestone documents, the proposed EU Child Guarantee and the EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child, which can be found here.  

Both these initiatives have great potential to catalyse more support and investment for early childhood development. 
If adopted by Member States, the Child Guarantee will be a key instrument to ensure that all children have access to adequate housing, healthy nutrition, access to healthcare and quality early learning and childcare.

The EU Strategy on the Rights of the Child recognizes that every child has the right to an adequate standard of living and to equal opportunities, from their earliest years.  The Strategy is also available in child-friendly formats

While we’re producing our initial reaction to these important initiatives, you can see Eurochild’s reaction here.
