European Child Safety Alliance’s Israel partner receives government endorsement
The European Child Safety Alliance´s national partner Beterem has won government endorsement for its Child Safety Action Plan (CSAP). A government resolution passed for “planning a perennial program to promote child safety in Israel”.
Beterem developed its Child Safety Action Plan as part of a European wide project run by the European Child Safety Alliance (ECSA). Over 25 countries are in various stages of developing CSAPs, which are now being further supported under ECSA´s Commission funded TACTICS initiative.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry of Health will lead the creation of a committee of senior members from several Israeli Ministries. Representatives from further authorities such as the police, construction and environmental officers, will also be included in planning. Beterem will provide professional support and guidance.
