Childhope supports children and young people who face the worst forms of injustice, violence and abuse in Africa, Asia and South America. We recognise that safeguarding the welfare of children is both an individual and organisational responsibility that extends to both our work in the UK and our overseas programmes. Through our work, we aim to ensure that all those who come into contact with children are aware of the need to protect children and know how to do this more effectively.

Seminar Series - Exploring the Principles of Child Protection

ChildHope is planning a series of seminars in 2016 on the theories, principles and practices that underpin child protection and work with vulnerable children.

The seminars aim to:

  • Explore the theories, principles and research that underpin child protection practice
  • Share methodologies and interventions that successfully transform these theories into effective practice
  • Discuss how the theories and principles apply more widely to the work of child focussed agencies

Child Safeguarding Training & Consultancy Support

ChildHope’s Child Protection Toolkit

This is a practical learning tool and set of resources designed for non-government organisations, particularly in Africa, Asia and South America, who are working to protect children. It aims to outline both the key principles relevant to Child Protection, and also the stages needed to develop, implement and evaluate Child Protection policies.

I am happy that I have learnt how to make a child protection policy. I am also proud that my organisation will soon have one.
