The Adhoc group was set up to advise the Commission in developing the 2012 Recommendation on Child Poverty. The consultation was based on a questionnaire focussing on 3 key questions:
- What is the added valued of a specific EU initiative
- What essential principles should feature in the Recommendation ( support to families, access to services and children’s participation and
- What suggestions for mechanisms to implement and monitor the Recommendation, in the context of Europe 2020 and the Social OMC. The SPC will prepare a report on the findings of the consultation which will feed into the Recommendation which will be adopted by June 2012.
