DataCare - Country Overviews

The DataCare Project was launched by Eurochild with support from UNICEF in March 2020.

In addition to providing an overview of the situation of children in alternative care in Europe, this project aims to inform EU efforts to agree comparable benchmarks and indicators to monitor progress in child protection reforms across Europe.

The DataCare team analysed data on children in alternative care for each country in EU and the UK to map how EU Member States and the UK currently collect data on the situation of children in alternative care.

The DataCare project also produced country overviews on the UK and each of its 4 nations.
