Rates of poverty in early childhood in Europe have increased dramatically in recent years. The economic context has had a negative impact on opportunities for public investment in early childhood. Policies and programmes for small children are generally less accessible to children from migrant and disadvantaged families. European foundations are increasingly asked to support interventions targeted to young children and their families, to support innovation on these issues, and to act as catalysers of multi-stakeholder networks working on advocacy for inclusive early childhood.
