(In)visible Children. Eurochild 2022 report on children in need across Europe

Press Release

Brussels, 15 December 2022- Eurochild releases a report on the situation of children in Europe which highlights the recommendations and priorities that EU decision-makers and national governments can do to support the most vulnerable children and prevent widening inequalities. 

The number of children living in poverty is increasing across the EU. The Covid-19 pandemic, the invasion of Ukraine, and the rising cost of living and energy crises have exacerbated existing inequalities even further.

“National governments must identify the children and families who need help and provide the support they need. Thanks to Eurochild members, we have identified national priorities and recommendations to tackle child poverty, prevent and combat social exclusion, uphold the rights of all children and foster equal opportunities.” - H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, Eurochild President.

Based on input from Eurochild national membersfrom 22 countries across Europe, thereport
provides feedback on the 2022 European Semester Country Reports and Country Specific Recommendations; the development of the Child Guarantee National Action Plans and further analysis of the situation regarding child poverty and social exclusion; and members’ knowledge and experiences of EU funding programmes.
