CarePath Objectives

  • Identify transferable procedures and trauma-informed working methods in integrated child protection systems as regards leaving care support.
  • Ensure that children ageing out of care have access to adequate trauma-informed aftercare support in the partners’ countries, as part of an integrated child protection system.
  • Increase the capacity of professionals in these systems to effectively support traumatised children, directly involving the child in determining the most suitable aftercare option for them.
  • Develop a sustainable mechanism to enable public authorities and professionals to provide integrated psycho-social support services to children leaving care, based on trauma-informed interventions.
