TOOLKIT – Foster care and alternative forms of care for unaccompanied and separated migrant children
This Toolkit has been elaborated starting from the  document  “Promoting the foster care of unaccompanied migrant children”, developed in the framework of the previous FORUM project (2017-2019, led by FADV). This Toolkit has been integrated with new sections on i) family and UASC training, ii) foster care and other forms of care awareness-raising, and ii) transition to adulthood. It has also been integrated with the good practices of the EPIC project partners and with the Recommendations for improving the reception of unaccompanied migrant children, which emerged from the seven online roundtables held within the EPICproject between October and December 2020.

The Toolkit is divided into two parts:

HANDBOOK, describing the situation of unaccompanied and separated migrant children, the care system, the selection and matching of families/single parents and their support, awareness-raising activities and the delicate phase of transition to adulthood.
TRAINING MODULES detailing the training programme for professionals, foster carers and unaccompanied and separated migrant children (and newly minted beneficiaries of support measures beyond 18).
