Young refugee and migrant children and their families



The available data shows that refugee children and children with a migrant background, in Europe, are at greater risk of poverty and social exclusion. Governments have an essential role in fostering a welcoming environment for young refugees and migrants by offering inclusive early childhood development services. 

Developed by the First Years, First Priority Campaign, this Thematic Paper includes:
  • Key recommendations at the EU and country level
  • A snapshot of EU policies addressing young migrant children, including refugees
  • Examples of national policies and programmes supporting young migrant children and their families
  • Key priorities for addressing the well-being of young migrants, including refugees
