Poland - Country Profile on the European Semester and COVID-19

To respond to the COVID-19 epidemic temporary changes were introduced to the Act on Family Support and the Alternative Care System that included the weakening of a regulation that the maximum number of children placed in an institutional care facility is 14 as well as an obligation to transform all institutions to accommodate a maximum of 14 children by 1 January 2021. Moreover, restrictions on placing children under the age of 10 in institutional care facilities have been also suspended.

Neither the government nor local authorities introduced mechanisms to monitor foster families to assist with their emerging challenges and needs. The greatest need was assistance to access online education.
