Deinstitutionalisation in Europe: 15 country reports now available

Opening Doors for Europe’s Children – a pan-European campaign advocating for strengthening families and ending institutional care – has released a new generation of country fact sheets, following the launch of a campaign’s next phase. 

The latest country snapshots look at the evidence on deinstitutionalisation (DI) and status of care reforms in 15 European countries  across EU member states, pre-accession countries and countries within the EU neighbourhood. 

The 2016 compilation of data provide recent, comparable and country-specific information on characteristics and the functioning of the child protection and care systems in Europe.

It identifies key achievements and gaps in implementing care reforms during the transition from institutional to family- and community-based care in Europe.
