Spain - 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 Spain 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.
This year’s European Semester Country Report for Spain does not clearly outline the main vulnerable groups of children that should be targeted by national policymakers, and the areas covered are not representative of the reality on the ground.
When it comes to funding priorities, Eurochild member, Plataforma de Infancia, calls on the government to prioritise investments to support the completion of compulsory education and to support the successful implementation of the Child Guarantee National Action Plan.
