European Child Guarantee prioritises children in alternative care
European Expert Group on the Transition from Institutional to Community-Based Care (EEG) reaction
European Child Guarantee prioritises children in alternative care. But a stronger commitment to end institutionalisation of children in the EU is required
The European Expert Group on the Transition from Institutional to Community-Based Care (EEG) is a coalition representing children and their families, people with disabilities and their families, homeless people, people experiencing mental health problems, service providers, public authorities and UN organisations. The EEG members come together because we believe that the segregation and institutionalisation of all people must end.
Both the EU and its Member States are bound by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and all EU Member States are bound by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). To uphold the right to live independently and be included in the community, children have the right to grow up in a family.
