The Youth Care Platform has been set up by the Flemish Ministry for Youth Welfare. This association gathers care providers and their umbrella organizations with those national, regional and local authorities with legal responsibilities for the youth care sector in EU Member States.

Youth care, juvenile justice and social policies, in general, are not Europe’s legal competencies.  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 this platform was set up in 2013. 

The Youth Care Platform is the advisory board of the A Way Home Project.
