TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLENCE

Compendium of research reports and recommendations.
“The project “Together against Violence” focuses on the prevention of cases of repeated violence by children and youths aged 14-18 years in Bulgaria, Spain and Austria. The main goal of the project is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the work with children and youths by improving the prevention activities and the intervention in view of reducing the subsequent violent behavior.

QUALITY FOR CHILDREN

Standards for Out-of-Home care in Europe

The Standards were launched at the European Parliament in June 2007 and are available in 27 languages.
The Quality4Children Standards were developed in the framework of a collaboration project between SOS Children’s Villages International, the International Foster Care Organisation (IFCO) and the International Federation of Educative Communities (FICE) to share 'good practices' and make tools available to improve conditions for children and young people living in alternative care, and to ensure that their rights are fulfilled and best interests are met.

CULTURE AND CARE, THE ROLE OF THE EXTENDED FAMILY CARE
Paper Presented During the FICE-INTERNATIONAL FEDERAL COUNCIL Held in Barcelona – Spain on 7th November, 2014 by Simon Peter Otieno – President of FICE Kenya. 
Abstract: “The Critical Review Paper (2010) informs that over 90% of OVCs are given care by the extended family system. This demonstrates and appreciates that the extended family care, a form of informal alternative care, in child and youth care, is the most suitable form of alternative care. This explains its growing popularity. The paper therefore demonstrates the suitability of this culture-based form of alternative care for children and youth in need of care and protection among communities, in comparison with orphanages or juveniles, among other categories of formal care.”

YOUTH WORK: GLOBAL DIFFERENCES
Jennifer Brooker, FICE Australia, RMIT University. 
Abstract: “Youth work is conducted throughout the world, in one of three major frameworks: a therapeutic model in North America, community development in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand and a social pedagogy in Europe. Despite these differences youth work remains the same – we work with and for young people in the hope of making their lives better.”
