European Commission: Seeking Applications on Capacity-Building in the area of Child Rights

Deadline: 31 May 2018

European Commission is seeking applications on “Capacity-building in the area of rights of the child – putting in place robust national or regional integrated mechanisms to support children ageing out of/leaving alternative care”. This call aims to fund targeted, practical projects ensuring maximum tangible and demonstrable benefits and impacts on the lives of beneficiaries (i.e. future careleavers).

The projects should be practical projects rather than research and should include a combination of elements to form a coherent whole. All projects should not only develop a sound methodology using recognised existing good practice or tried and tested intervention models, but consist of a large proportion of practical implementation measures and outcomes.

As the focus is on national or regional integrated mechanisms, projects are expected to be inclusive in nature, covering all children in state or corporate care. Children in families can generally rely on family support over relatively long periods and “corporate” or “state” parents should have commensurate support mechanisms in place for children in care.

As part of an approach fostering an integrated approach to children in state care, this call can also cover third-country national/migrant children (including unaccompanied children) who are in the care of the State.

Project applications must demonstrate the close involvement in all project phases of those working directly with children in care. Thus, it is expected that applicants and partners include in the first instance organisations and actors responsible for and working with and for children in care.

All projects under this call can be either national or transnational and should be elaborated in close partnership with and/or be led by appropriate key players, in particular those working for and directly with children in alternative care and child protection agencies, careleavers’ associations, ministries/authorities for children or social affairs, social protection, children’s ombudspersons, services responsible for: housing, labour market integration, higher education and vocational training (including scholarships and grants), health and mental health, counselling and psycho-social support; civil society organisations, the judiciary, social workers, academia, etc.
