Violence Against Children with Disabilities: Legislation, policies and programmes in the EU

Children with disabilities face significant barriers to enjoying their fundamental rights. They are often excluded from society, sometimes living in institutions or other facilities far from their families. Children with disabilities are denied access to basic services, such as health care and education, and endure stigma and discrimination, as well as sexual, physical and psychological violence.

This report outlines the findings of research conducted by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) on violence against children with disabilities, focusing on the extent, forms, causes and settings of such violence.

The report is based on desk research covering all 28 EU Member States, examining legal and policy provisions that address violence against children with disabilities, as well as national measures for preventing, and protecting against, this violence.
