Dear Colleagues,

Most of us have been living in an emergency state brought on by the coronavirus for more than a month now. This has had a huge impact on our life and work in child protection. Therefore, this month our newsletter brings you a bit of impact analysis on the situation for children and youth, and some promising ideas to adopt in our services. Scroll down to read the news, publications, and check our webinar and e-learning course suggestions!

ChildHub now has a special Covid-19 section where you can find further updates, especially on the mental health and psychosocial support page.

If you’d like to hear more from us, please follow our Facebook page and join our group to discuss practical questions! 

Yours in solidarity,
The Child Protection Hub Team

P.S. In case of need check the available 116 helpline in your country.
