News from The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD)
The proposal for a European Child Guarantee was published by the European Commission (yesterday).
The initiative recommends that Member States establish National Plans to improve access to key quality services for children in need, with specific mention of children with disabilities and children living in institutions.
The need for improved access to inclusive childhood education and care (ECEC), inclusive education, deinstitutionalisation and investment in quality social services and its workforce were also highlighted in the Guarantee.
The European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (EASPD) welcomes the proposal, is ready to cooperate towards its implementation, and calls on Member States to quickly adopt the Guarantee.
