Eurochild launches second phase of its DataCare project
Date: 7th April 2022
Category: Child rights indicators
Launching in four countries – France, Ireland, Portugal and Romania - this project uses data collection, monitoring and child rights based indicators to identify the proportion of children placed in residential care compared to those placed in formal family-based care. This work aims to monitor the extent to which children in alternative care receive high quality, inclusive, family and community-based care.
Researchers are now engaging with EU and Member States to include these rights-based indicators on children in alternative care into countries’ National Action Plans and the EU monitoring framework for the European Child Guarantee.
