It looks at Distribution Monitoring, Safetiness of the Distribution, Fraud and Safeguarding, Feedback and Response Mechanisms, Participation and Satisfaction, Household/Adolescent utilization of CVA, Impact of CVA on CP Outcomes (including emotional and physical wellbeing, school drop-out, child labour, and family separation. It also includes an Urgent Action Procedure in case any risks are raised that need to be immediately addressed by the case worker.
