A safe family for every child: An agenda for action

Every Child's Agenda for Action calls for decision makers around the world to step up efforts to ensure that all children grow up safe and protected in families. It identifies three key areas of action that are of particular importance to ensuring children around the world grow up in a safe and caring family:

- Incorporate the protection of children, particularly those without adequate care into the framework that will replace the MDGs when they come to an end in 2015.

- Ensure that models of social protection are more effective in enabling parents and families to care for children and prevent children leaving home unnecessarily.

- Support the full implementation of the Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children.
