BECOME SAFE
Summary

The overall objective of "BECOME SAFE - Building Efforts for Children On the Move in Europe through Systemic Approaches, Facilitation and Expertise" is to improve the protection of migrant children and young people victims or at risk of violence, and uphold their rights to assistance and quality victims care in the EU.

 

 

Duration of the Project

February 2021 - January 2023

 
Objective

The overall objective is to improve the protection of migrant children and young people victims or at risk of violence, and uphold their rights to assistance and quality victims care in the EU.

 

Activities

To achieve this, the project deploys three complementary strategies to promote systemic and sustainable improvements in the protection of children and youth on the move in Belgium, Italy, Spain and Greece. It does so through working hand in hand with children and young people themselves, as well as professionals in contact with them. Amongst the latter, the project specifically targets:

  • Professionals in contact with children and young people on the move in reception centres and other accommodation services (such as social workers, NGO staff, etc.);
  • Professionals in contact with children and young people victims of violence or at risk as part of national child protection services / victims support services.

The overall objectives are:

  • Empower and raise awareness amongst migrant children and youth victims or potential victims of violence on their rights to protection, and available support services;
  • Enhance the capacity of professionals working with migrant children and youth victims or potential victims of violence, and other ‘mainstream professionals’ and child protection systems delivering victims support services in order to better serve the specific needs of migrant children; 
  • Enable migrant children and youth victims and potential victims of violence to access quality protection and multidisciplinary support services through improved referrals and coordination between professionals and child protection services.
