Our advocacy

We influence national, regional and global decision-makers to implement positive change to child protection policies and services, with a specific focus on children being cared for in a safe family environment.

We use our common voices, based on our own diverse contexts and experiences, to reach a common goal.

Advocacy approach

Through our advocacy, we aim to increase the momentum for change in the countries where we work.

We encourage children and families to participate in our advocacy at every stage and dedicate the resources needed to deliver on this. We believe that making links to other sectors, such as health, education, social protection and justice, will have a greater impact.

Advocacy aims

Safe and caring families

We want more governments and donors to actively promote the implementation of the international Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children for the benefit of all children, particularly those aged under 3.

Family strengthening

We want to see models of social protection that are more effective to enable parents and families to care for their children and prevent children leaving home unnecessarily.
