Research and policy
Up to date research is crucial to understand the issues that cause children to be apart from their families and the best methods of returning them to family-type care. This will vary from context to context and will very much depend on that individual child’s circumstances. However, often there are commonalities that can be identified and used to improve practices or advocate for changes.
By gaining a better understanding of the situation for children without parental care,
can be sure that their work is effective in achieving positive impact on the lives of children without parental care and those at risk, either directly through their programmes, by collaborating with others or by advocating for changes nationally, regionally and internationally.
The Coalition Support Unit is leading on coordinating joint multi- country research studies with
members into issues affecting children without parental care and coordinate multi-country studies
