Realising children's rights: A training manual for care professionals working with children in alternative care

The project aims to ensure the rights of children and young people living in care are met while being in care and during their transition to an independent life.

The manual for care professionals working with children in alternative care has been made available to the public in connection with the International Alternative Care Conference in Geneva, 3-5 October. 'Training Professionals Working with Children in Care' is a two-year partnership (2015-2016) led by SOS Children’s Villages International, together with Eurochild, the Council of Europe and other partners from Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, France, Italy, Latvia, Hungary and Romania. 

The manual consists of 8 sessions which create a 12-hour interactive module specifically designed for care professionals who want to familiarise with the international standards and principles surrounding children’s rights. The handbook includes background resources, activities, tips and examples.
