Organization: Family to Children
Project: Child Abuse: Recognition and Response
Target group: Children who are victims of abuse and exploitation, children in alternative care
The goal of the project is to prevent child abuse in state care institutions. Based on information provided by care givers, two main complementary approaches will be developed to prevent abuse to happen in the future. First, a curriculum for training of staff about types of abuse, symptoms of abuse and how to work with abused children will be developed. Second, an inter-agency, monitoring and controlling body (expert council) led by the Ombudsman for children will be established. The task of the expert council will be to monitor the situation in the residential institutions.
