Our Projects

Child Circle participates in European projects which connect partners across countries and build regional resources.

These projects deliver tools for professionals in their day-to-day work, alongside policy analysis and recommendations which support national and European policymakers in learning from the experience of frontline professionals.

Recent projects focus on child victims and witnesses of violence, children in migration including children who seek asylum or have been trafficked, children who are separated or at risk of separation from their parents and children suspected or accused of crime.
