Feasibility study for a child guarantee (FSCG): Final Report

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Almost a quarter of all children in the EU are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. The European Parliament and the European Commission called for a Child Guarantee to ensure that every child in Europe in a vulnerable situation has access to free healthcare, free education, free childcare, decent housing and adequate nutrition. This study assesses the feasibility, efficiency and overall
benefits of a Child Guarantee scheme. It also includes concrete suggestions for improving policies and programmes at EU and national levels.
