Romania - 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 Romania 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.
Although the European Semester Country Report for Romania mentions that child poverty increased from 40% in 2019 to 41.5% in 2021 and remains the highest in the EU, the report does not provide significant guidance on how to tackle child poverty.
When it comes to funding priorities, Eurochild member, Hope and Homes for Children Romania, call on the Romanian government to prioritise investments on preventing family separation, and ensuring social housing for families at risk.
