Amici dei Bambini

The need for a tool of this kind comes from the need to increase the quality of the activities implemented to support young people in the residential care system in becoming autonomous. Our research shows that this support is not currently organised, and it is usually left to the good will or personal initiative of individual operators, who decide to accept this burden even outside the scope of their skills.
Although the issues and needs are common to all of them, each European Union member state reacts differently, thus highlighting the total absence of minimum standards which, if in place and applied, would increase the social inclusion opportunities for this category of young people at risk.
The nature of our tool is based on the provisions of the “Joint Report on Social Protection and Social Inclusion – Com (2008) 42 final communication from the Commission to the Council, the European Parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions”, the official document on social protection and social inclusion issued by the Commission in March 2008 and addressed to the other institutional bodies, stating that:
1. the category of young people who have grown up within the residential care system is at high risk of social exclusion;
2. the situation of such especially vulnerable groups cannot be monitored with standard instruments, but requires specific monitoring tools.
The document goes on to stress the importance of the involvement of the anti-poverty and child welfare workgroup in the “Indicators sub-group” (SGI), whose social inclusion programme last year contained also the specific area of Child Well-being as one of the priority development areas with regard to the increase in the interactions between the Open Co-ordination Method and the Lisbon Convention: there can be no economic growth without the integration and development of social policies.
