Lessons Learned and Recommendations to Strengthen Families and End Institutionalisation for Children in Europe
To maximise the potential of the European Union and realise the vision where no child grows up in institutional care, civil society organisations across EU Member States, pre-accession countries and neighbourhood countries came together under a pan-European campaign: Opening Doors for Europe’s Children. The campaign aimed to support national efforts to develop comprehensive, integrated child protection systems that strengthen families and ensure quality family- and community-based care for children, by leveraging EU funding and policy, and building capacity in civil society. More than a sum of individual efforts at national level, the campaign presented a united position of relevant civil society organisations towards key decision-makers.
