Every Child Deserves a Family. EveryChild's approach to children without parental care

This document outlines EveryChild’s approach to the growing problem of children without parental care. It defines key concepts, analyses the nature and extent of the problem, explores factors which place children at risk of losing parental care, and examines the impact of a loss of parental care on children’s rights.The document also provides principles for good practice in trying to reduce the number of children without parental care, and protect girls and boys who are already without their mothers and fathers. It is primarily intended for internal use, though it is hoped that it will also be of relevance to others working in this field.
