ProGuard, a project co-funded by the EU and led by Nidos in the Netherlands started in October 2017.
Guardianship for unaccompanied children should be, and is ready to be a part of every European national system. To achieve this, a formal European network and a European system of accreditation are needed.
This project will enable EU Member States to further professionalise their work and the protection systems they are part of, thus further improving the outcome for the children in the system.
See the ProGuard webpage for more information.
