Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice (KAP) Surveys in Child Protection is a step-by-step guide to the design and implementation of surveys for all staff working on child protection programmes that need quantitative data on knowledge, attitudes and practices related to child protection. In particular, this guide will help to strengthen the quality of our research, monitoring and evaluation work, and enable Save the Children to contribute to a step-change in the child protection evidence base that is so critically needed. The objectives of the guide are to: i. Introduce the concept of KAP surveys in child protection; ii. Help users determine if a KAP survey is an appropriate method for collecting data to be used on a child protection programme; iii. Describe how to prepare for, implement and use the results of a KAP survey, offering valuable advice and learning from the field at each stage of the process; iv. Provide additional guidance on how to ensure the quality of KAP data and enhance the participation of children during the different steps of a survey.
