Working Together for Children in Criminal Proceedings (2020-2021)
The FOCUS project’s main objective is to ensure that children in contact with the law, as victims and suspects or accused, benefit from individual assessments of their needs as required under EU law. FOCUS will promote the implementation of robust and multidisciplinary individual assessment practices, including in restorative justice processes. Child Circle is delighted to be working with project coordinator Terre des Hommes in Budapest, SAPI in Bulgaria, Terre des Hommes Greece, DCI Netherlands, Terre des Hommes Romania and the Child Rights Centre Serbia to improve children’s experiences in justice proceeding by exchanging good practices, training professionals, developing and piloting tools to enhance national processes.
FOCUS is co-funded by the Rights, Equality, Citizenship Programme of the European Union
