Now on track: the single EU hotline number for missing children

Article
On 20 December, a committee of Member State representatives, at an extraordinary meeting convened by the Commission, endorsed the Commission's initiative to reserve throughout the EU common freephone numbers for services of social value. This means in particular that the 116000 number will be made available for hotlines for missing children. Member States are asked to make this major initiative for children's rights a reality as soon as possible.
