In today’s Europe, it is unacceptable that one in four children is at risk of social exclusion and poverty. We are far from reaching the goals adopted unanimously by the UN and now more than ever it is time to join forces and work together against poverty and strengthen social cohesion. To respond to these needs, Eurodiaconia members provide services to hundreds of thousands of people in need across Europe. Amongst them, they provide a wide range of child-related services such as families support centres, children’s homes, youth work services, after-school programmes, child protection, counselling and many other social services impacting on children and families.

Eurodiaconia is also an active member of the EU Alliance for Investing in Children which brings together over 20 European networks, sharing a commitment to end child poverty and to promote child well-being across Europe.
