Guidelines for safeguarding and empowering children
In collaboration with experts from four member organisations, WAVE developed a comprehensive child safeguarding framework that can be adapted to different legal contexts. WAVE members involved in the project are the Autonomous Women’s House Zagreb (AWHZ) from Croatia, NANE Women’s Rights Association (Women For Women Together Against Violence) from Hungary, the Central Information Office of Autonomous Women’s Shelters (ZIF) from Germany, and the Women’s Rights Foundation (WRF) from Malta.
The goal of this project is to ensure that children and young people are safe and can be protected whilst their mothers get supported by women’s specialist services (WSS). Moreover, the aim is to raise awareness of a wide range of stakeholders from relevant sectors (child protection and social services, judiciary, and police, among others) on the duty of children’s safeguarding and on the ways and means of its effective implementation.
