Forthcoming policy developments

The preparations for drafting a new National Youth Strategy for 2023-2030 have started taking place.

According to the Cyprus Recovery and Resilience Plan 2021-2026, several reforms and investments to address Cyprus’ weaknesses in the areas of social protection and social inclusion are planned, such as the establishment of Hostels and Day-Care Programmes’ infrastructure for young people with conduct disorder issues, unaccompanied minors and people with disabilities.

Moreover, following the adoption of the 3rd National Disability Action Plan (“Τρίτο Εθνικό Σχέδιο Δράσης για την Αναπηρία”) in February 2022, a number of actions concerning the development of a new legislative and institutional framework for the provision of social inclusion services and benefits to persons with disabilities, including young people, are to be implemented in 2023.
