About us

The European Child Safety Alliance was launched in 2000 with the ambition to make the lives of children living in Europe safer.

Today, more than 30 countries across Europe are working together to reduce the leading cause of death, disability and inequity to children in every Member State in the region - injury.



The two year project PIECES: Policy Investigation in Europe on Child Endangerment and Support which conducted in-depth investigations into six policy issues related to violence against children, is complete and the results are now available.

The report, six policy papers and case studies and can be downloaded here. For more information contact



ECSA and its partners have launched a report on inequity in child injury in Europe with three targeted good practice tools. The four documents stem from the TACTICS: Tools to Address Childhood Trauma, Injury and Children’s Safety project which aims to provide better information, practical tools and resources to support the adoption and implementation of evidence-based good practices for the prevention of injury to children and young people in Europe.
