1) Access to adequate resources. 2) Access to quality services and 3) Participation of children. EAPN spoke in workshop 1 on shaping employment and income policies to meet the needs of families experiencing poverty, together with inputs from COFACE and Eurodiaconia, sending a strong message on the impact of the crisis, and the need for access to resources to not focus only on access to quality employment but back adequate family income support, with new initiatives to work-life balance reforms, particularly for low income families. EAPN Cyprus/Eurochild organized the participation of children in workshop 3. The final plenary involved a debate between Gilda Farrell, Council of Europe, UNICER and CEPS/INSTEAD on ways forward on monitoring progress. Ms Farrell, EAPN and other organisations stressed the urgency of participation and engagement in bottom up solutions, as well as participative methodologies involving people with direct experience of poverty in the monitoring process following on the examples of consensualized budget standards. A strong message was sent by the Cypriot Presidency and the rapporteur: Fran Bennett (UK) on the need to ensure that the new Communication focused on child well-being as well as child poverty, backed universal services and benefits and ensured that austerity measures didn’t not jeopardize current and future well-being.
