DataCare Country Overview - Poland
In the context of the DataCare project, key data on children in alternative care for each country in EU and the UK have been analysed to map how EU Member States and the UK currently collect data on the situation of children in alternative care.
In general, there is very little detailed information about children, e.g. no data on ethnicity or country of origin.
Information on the reasons for placement is limited to just one problem in families who are most often suffering
from multiple difficulties. There are no detailed data about the child’s parents and there are no data on children’s
readmissions to the Polish system.
