How to maximise opportunities for children at risk of exclusion?

The rising of inequality, the impact of the crisis and people’s movements has raised the risk of poverty and marginalisation among children in Europe. Children at risk are persons under 18 who experience an intense and/or chronic risk factor, or a combination of risk factors in personal, environmental and/or relational domains that prevent them from pursuing and fulfilling their potential. An at-risk youth is a child who is less likely to transition successfully into adulthood.

The Accelerating Change for Social Inclusion project will focus on finding proven innovations that maximise the opportunities of generally all excluded children and children at risk of social exclusion.
