The objective of the European Child Guarantee is to prevent and combat social exclusion by guaranteeing effective access of children in need to a set of key services:

  • free early childhood education and care
  • free education (including school-based activities and at least one healthy meal each school day)
  • free healthcare
  • healthy nutrition, and
  • adequate housing

While most children in the EU already have access to these services, inclusive and truly universal access is vital for ensuring equal opportunities for all children, and in particular those who experience social exclusion due to poverty or other forms of a disadvantage. The Member States are preparing national action plans, covering the period until 2030.
