Child Hub develops a wiki-page on multi-agency collaboration

This month the Child Hub community is developing its first collaborative WIKI-paper, and we encourage you to join this exciting initiative. With your contribution we will be able to picture the situation of multi-agency and inter-disciplinary collaboration in the region. No matter whether you want to share a brief fact or a number, or you have a whole wealth of information and knowledge to share. Simply click EDIT here, select a country that you would like to share info about and write your input, share a document or a link by June 30th, 2015. The authors of the most valuable contributions will be invited to present their experiences at the upcoming regional conference on Multi-Agency collaboration in child protection in the Fall 2015.

 

We’re hunting for child participatory projects!

Do you know any organisations in the region that really involve children in projects addressing child sexual violence? Help us with spotting them and building a more active and dynamic protective society for children! 

What we are looking for:

  • child participatory projects
  • addressing sexual violence against children
  • particularly in Moldova, Bulgaria and Latvia but also across the Balkans.

Please submit your recommendations here and help the best initiative to potentially become a partner in an Oak-funded project involving young people in activities to prevent sexual violence of children!
