Malta - 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 Malta 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.

The European Semester Country Report for Malta only refers to children superficially. Additionally, the report does not clearly identify the main vulnerable groups of children in Malta for national policymakers’ attention. In fact, there is no common understanding as to who the children from disadvantaged groups are and what kind of vulnerable situations they are experiencing.

When it comes to funding priorities, Eurochild members, the Malta Foundation for the Wellbeing of Society and the Early Childhood Development Association of Malta, call on the Maltese government to prioritise investments in high quality early childhood education and care.
