    1. Family Links Nurturing Programme

    United Kingdom, 1994 - Still operating

    The Family Links Nurturing Programme (FLNP) is a ten-week, group-based intervention centred on improving child outcomes by enabling parents to cope better with the challenges of parenting. Unlike parent training programmes, which generally place an emphasis on behavioural changes and the acquisition of parenting skills, FLNP identifies itself as a parenting support programme that is ‘cognitive-relational’ in emphasis. This means that the programme aims to improve home environments and parent-child relationships by helping parents to understand and manage the thoughts, emotions, and behaviour of both themselves and their children. The programme is based upon the US-developed Nurturing Parenting Programme and has been adapted for universal roll-out to families across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, including for Muslim families, families with parents in prison, and families with children who have disabilities and special needs.

    3. A local sports project for young offenders in Copenhagen

    Denmark, 2010 - Unknown

    Since 2010, the social services administration of the Municipality of Copenhagen has led the implementation of a sports project for young offenders who are at risk of criminal behaviour, including drug and alcohol trade and misuse, as well as young people with criminal records. The goal of the practice is to include young offenders in society by engaging them in group or individual sport activities and training sessions provided by volunteers, social workers or previous participants of the project. Family members and friends of young offenders are encouraged to be involved as the project is open to the wider community of Copenhagen. These activities aim to develop the social and emotional experiences and skills of young offenders and maximise their engagement and social interactions with peers as well as with their family members.

    5. Time to be Welcome

    France, Greece, 2016 - Still operating

    ‘Time to be Welcome’ is a project that aims to support and empower newly-arrived migrant and refugee children and young people to smoothly integrate in Greece and France. The programme targets migrant and refugee children and young people not only coming from Syria but also from different regions around the world. The project is a partnership led by the World Scout Organisation Movement in partnership with various youth organisations which aim to encourage volunteers to help young migrants and refugees through non-formal education activities and youth work. The number of volunteers participating in the project is 50 and they come from countries around the world for periods between 2 to 12 months. The volunteers receive training before temporarily joining the host organisations of EEUDF in France and the Soma Hellinon Proskopon in Greece. The training stage aims to prepare volunteers for delivering educational activities based on a child-centred, bottom-up approach which ensures migrant and refugee children’s long-term inclusion in the communities of reception. Daily activities include a variety of workshops, sport and cultural activities language courses as well as raising awareness events and activities to promote the programme’s good practices and the interaction of refugee population with local communities.
