Advocacy Guidance


Publisher:  Council of the Baltic Sea States Secretariat and Child Circle Publication type:  Guide / Guidelines / Principle

PROMISE is a project based on the commitment of several European countries to strengthen “multi-disciplinary and interagency collaboration to ensure that child victims and witnesses of violence have access to Barnahus and benefit from a child-friendly, professional and effective response in a safe environment”, thus promoting a broader and more comprehensive framework of child protection.

This guide aims at promoting the development of national and regional advocacy strategies on the progress of Barnahus. It discusses what such advancement means and provides an overview of the current situation in Europe, in order to instruct on how to start advocacy actions.
