Active citizenship, guardians, legal representatives and foster care families for children deprived of parental care

On December 1st 2016 the project ELFO "Empowering guardians, Legal representatives and FOster families of children deprived of parental care against violence through child rights" has started. 

The reinforcement of parental care of those actors of civil society who undertake parental functions, like for example guardians foster parents and legal representatives, and who act independently and for the best interest of the child could constitute a key element to prevent violence and abuse of children deprived of parental care. Nevertheless, as reported by FRA Agency of European Union, often these subjects do not receive an appropriate, specialized and constant training in most of the European countries.
