A new website has been launched to promote best practice in child and family protection across the world.
The How We Care website is a bi-lingual ‘by practitioners, for practitioners’ resource, which has been produced by Family For Every Child, an international member-led network of local children’s organisations.
Family for Every Child believes that by sharing practitioner knowledge, practice can be strengthened globally, which will contribute to their vision of a world where every child grows up in a safe and caring family.
The website introduces new, themed multimedia content three times a year as well as producing related live online events.
The first theme, now live, is the prevention of sexual violence, with a focus upon child sexual abuse. A second series, addressing practitioners’ response to the COVID-19 crisis in the area of psychosocial support to children and families, is coming online shortly.
For each chosen theme, the site will showcase outputs and outcomes of a range of projects from different parts of the world that have proven highly effective.
Themes are explored using video, the written word, illustration and discussion. All site content has initially been produced in English and Spanish.
‘How We Care was developed to showcase amazing projects developed by local organisations and share them on a global level, so that practitioners may learn from one another and exchange knowledge through live events,’ said Family For Every Child chief executive, Amanda Griffith.
‘You can read about, listen to discussion on, and watch videos explaining the steps our members have taken to develop their practice.
‘You will also learn about how they implement it, and considerations for adapting it to other contexts, and you will be provided with clear and practical takeaways.’
