« Keeping Families Together
To lose your family is to lose a fundamental part of yourself. In Ukraine many families are faced with the harrowing decision of whether to place their children in orphanages or risking starvation for the whole family.
It's a choice no parent should have to make.
We strengthen family structures and devise practical solutions that are in the child's best interests.
Skills training, counselling and advice help families develop coping strategies, which in turn prevent family breakdown.
Families whose children are at risk are given practical and emotional advice, as well as continued support and encouragement, to enable them to cope with any subsequent difficulties thus preventing family breakdown and avoiding institutionalisation.
Social workers, trained by EveryChild, assess individual and family needs to identify the support required to prevent a child being admitted to institutional care.
