The aim of this two year EC-funded project is to build knowledge and capacity of professionals and foster carers, kinship and Dublin family caretakers to enhance family-based care to promote welfare and ensure protection of unaccompanied children in the UK, Cyprus, Denmark and Greece.

To achieve this objective, the partnership will deliver four (4) types of activities:

  • Develop and deliver 1 e-learning training module on core knowledge and skills and 4 on country specific issues for professionals
  • Develop and deliver 1 e-learning training module on core knowledge and skills and 3 on country specific issues to foster carers and kinship/Dublin caretakers
  • Deliver face-to-face training and capacity building workshops to professionals and foster carers and kinship/Dublin caretakers
  • Raise awareness and advocate policy regarding family-based care for unaccompanied children, with institutional and policy makers, and wider public.

The main target groups that will directly benefit from the planned activities are: 

  • Professionals and foster carers will be reached directly through training
  • Policy makers, professionals, and general public will be reached through awareness raising activities.

The final beneficiaries of the project are unaccompanied minors in the participating countries and Europe in general.

The results expected to be produced by the SAFE project are:

  • Improved knowledge and capacity of professionals on implementing family-based care for unaccompanied children
  • Improved knowledge and capacity of fosters carers, kinship, Dublin family carers to support unaccompanied children
  • Increased awareness of institutional authorities, policy makers, wider public on benefits of family-based care for unaccompanied children.
