Significant progress has been achieved over the last few years to strengthen child protection and care systems across Europe.

It is critical to ensure that the pandemic does not become a stumbling block, and that countries do not revert to the harmful practice of placing children in institutions or separating children from their families when it’s against their best interests. European governments should use this crisis to further accelerate reform and build more resilient families and communities.

Cedar together with 14 other NGOs called on European governments and the European Union institutions to reinforce actions to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable children and families.
