Children’s experts from across the UK, including the Children Society and Barnado’s, have come together to form the ‘Brexit and Children’ coalition and have published a report which explores the specific implications of Brexit on children and young people. The Making Brexit work for children report stresses the need for the government to ensure that all existing protections for children’s rights in the EU legislative framework are protected and preserved in domestic law after Brexit. The EU has enacted over 80 legal instruments that confer direct entitlement for children covering issues such as migration, asylum, child protection, health and safety, paediatric medicine, access to social and economic rights and cross-border family breakdown.

The report suggests:

• the Government should ensure that all existing protections for children’s rights in the EU legislative framework are protected and preserved in domestic law;

• the needs of children and young people should be considered in determining the settlement status of EU nationals, and for this group to able to apply for settled status in their own right;

• the Government should put a strategy in place to continue membership of EU-level data, intelligence-sharing, training, research and security infrastructure with a view to protecting children;

• in light of inflationary uncertainty caused by Brexit, the Government should end the current benefits freeze in place until 2020 to protect low-income families;

• the Government should guarantee that the proposed shared prosperity fund will continue funding projects supporting children and young people post-Brexit;

• the UK should remain part of the EU family framework that regulates cross border family law cases which offers the best protection for children’s rights; and

• the Government should ensure that children and young people across the UK are given the opportunity to express their views on all issues of relevance to them during the withdrawal process.
