Moving towards community-based care for children without parental care


The Seminar on “Moving towards independent living and community-based care – EU funding instruments to support the development of community-based services for children without adequate parental care” took place on 14 March 2019.

The seminar provided an opportunity to exchange information relating to the transition from institutional to community-based care, regarding the support of children without adequate parental care.

Topics such as understanding deinstitutionalisation, and the factors that lead to an effective transition were also discussed during the seminar.

The event was hosted by both the Ministry for Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy of Croatia as well as the Ministry for Labour and Pension System. In attendance were representatives of the two Croatian Ministries and local service providers as well as members of the European Expert Group on deinstitutionalisation (Inclusion Europe and Eurochild) and civil society organisations. Delegates also included representatives from the European Commission and the Mutual Learning Programme team.
