To achieve child poverty reduction and to advocate for the effective implementation of the Recommendation “Investing in Children” in EU Member States, the Alliance has initiated two national pilots in Spain & the United Kingdom.

It is envisaged that more National Alliances are supported in the future.

National activities include:

  • To advocate nationally for investment in children by using the leverage of EU funds and policies (Europe 2020, European Semester, Structural Funds)
  • To organise high level events with national politicians and policy-makers
  • To carry out consultations and participatory activities with children and young people
  • To build capacity of, and cooperation among, civil society organisations campaigning against child poverty.
