Croatia - Country Profile 2022 on children in need

Eurochild recently published a new report, (In)visible children, on the situation of children in need across Europe. Read feedback from our members from Croatia on the European Semester, on EU funding, and on the development of the Child Guarantee National Action Plans and further analysis on child poverty and social exclusion

In our latest report, (In)visible Children - Eurochild 2022 report on children in need across Europe, together with our members we urge governments and decision-makers to support the most vulnerable children and prevent widening inequalities.

Eurochild member, Coordination of Associations for Children (CAC), highlights the need to put in place deinstitutionalisation measures, absent in the European Semester Country Report. Moreover, CAC felt early childhood education and care was rightfully included, with a measure targeting its model of financing. In addition, some relevant measures are planned for education beyond early years, including addressing the low participation of Roma children in formal education.

When it comes to funding priorities, Eurochild member, Coordination of Associations for Children (CAC), calls on the Croatian government to use ESF+ to prioritise investment in areas such as deinstitutionalisation, integrated social services, child-oriented justice systems, education, and child participation.
