Building on 5 years of mutual learning and exchange, Eurochild launches its Compendium of Inspiring Practices on Early Intervention and Prevention, presenting 12 case studies which offer a sample of services that have had a demonstrable positive impact on the children and families they aim to serve.
Case studies vary but have the following common themes:
- Aim to work with parents, families and communities to promote a positive environment in which children and young people can grow and thrive;
- Demonstrate the need to intervene with appropriate, timely measures when children, their parents or families are in a vulnerable situation;
- Are underpinned by key principles such as a non-judgemental and non-stigmatising orientation, participatory and strengths-based approach, accessible services for all and early intervention services for the most vulnerable;
- Demonstrate inter-service collaboration, as a way of engaging with families, building their resilience and empowering them.
