Reaching in - Strengthening Children’s Participation in the Child Guarantee

This paper summarises what has been learned about children’s perspectives on important factors to consider in implementation of the Child Guarantee.

The learning comes from nine pilot projects with Roma community groups in two countries (Spain and Bulgaria), and with Eurochild members (in Spain, Croatia, Portugal and Belgium). This position paper outlines the nine Reaching In pilot projects then reports perspectives on:

  • Education and activities
  • Healthcare and healthy nutrition
  • Housing
  • Involving children in planning and monitoring National Action Plans

Reaching In is a co-learning collaboration facilitated by Cath Larkins (University of Central Lancashire) together with Eurochild and Abel Beremenyi (University of Barcelona). This report brings together insights from professionals, children and young people involved with Fundación Pere Closa, Bulgarian Family Planning Association, Romane Glasura, Arte Youth, Bulgarian Roma Health Mediators, Bulgarian Natioonal Network for Children, FICE, PAJE, Active Citizen Europe, Sara Lopez and Ali Roy.
