Prevention of children institutionalization

Design for UNICEF-Spain of a public system of community detection and early intervention in children at risk

(2022)

We are collaborating with KSNET (Knowledge Sharing Network) and the suport of the iSocial member NGO Fundació Resilis-Plataforma Educativa, to develop this model with the participation of 10 municipalities of C.Madrid, C.Valenciana and C.Castilla-La Mancha. The project seeks to modernize social services in the field of children at risk, from a perspective based on a framework of rights, an intervention and support focused on each person, and the promotion of a community and preventive approach. With KSNET, the iSocial Foundation develops various phases of research, resource map and identification of good practices that allow the development of a preventive model of community detection and early intervention in children at risk. ISocial’s work focuses on identifying, selecting, and analyzing good local and international practices that can inspire and guide this new model.

Numerous studies have shown that the institutionalization of children and adolescents can have serious consequences for their development, social inclusion and mental health. Therefore, together with the actions to improve the system of protection for children at risk, experts agree that mechanisms must be articulated to prevent and detect risk situations effectively and early. These mechanisms must be accompanied by preventive measures to ensure an inclusive environment and emotional security that enables the satisfactory development of children and adolescents. To this end, local governments, as institutions closest to children and adolescents, are in a better position to successfully implement such measures.
