More information



Youth care, juvenile justice and social policies in general are not Europe’s legal competences.  But the impact of the EU is fast growing and broadening, extending also to the social and welfare policies.  This causes threads and opportunities for actors in the youth care sector and it urges to act also at this EU-level.  Therefore care providers, their umbrellas and national/regional/local authorities with legal responsibilities in the Youth Care sector in EU-member states are cooperating in a permanent European 'Youth Care Platform'.  

On this website you can follow the work of the Platform.  But we also welcome all your feedback and positions: open the floor for an active discussion by using the discussion facility (below each page) or contact us.
