4. Social Inclusion
Cyprus has adopted various national strategies that also serve the social inclusion of young people. There are those that include all age groups (e.g. the Strategy for Social Policy 2014-2020, which is the primary strategy dealing with social inclusion in the country) and those directed at children and youth (e.g. National Youth Strategy). The cross-sectoral cooperation is a key element of the strategy and many of its actions are organized in order to support the social inclusion of groups are risk.
Over the last years, policies and services for the social inclusion of people have been reinforced. However, a main challenge remains the fact that there is a lack of services targeting specifically young people.
