In Europe, children are the age group at the highest risk of poverty or social exclusion. In fact, the statistic is one in four. This is why in 2014, the S&D Group launched the European Child Guarantee initiative to put an end to child poverty.

This is a new approach that aims to tackle the different aspects of child poverty. It will ensure that every European child in poverty, or at risk of poverty, has access to free quality healthcare and childcare, free quality education, decent housing and adequate nutrition.

We are fighting for a sizeable budget of €5.9 billion to be dedicated to the European Child Guarantee.
