The former ENGI website has been transformed into this website of the European Department of Nidos.

ENGI is not an active network anymore. It was the predecessor of the current European Guardianship Network ( which has been formalised at the beginning of 2019.

The first steps towards ENGI were taken in 2005, resulting in a European Refugee Fund project initiated by Nidos (NL) and Refugium e.V. (DE). Several projects on guardianship and sub-themes around guardianship were completed within ENGI since, financed by the European Commission and the European Programme for Integration and Migration, among others.

ENGI consisted of several projects, aiming at developing the quality and quantity of and knowledge about guardianship. Projects were set up by different alliances of organisations.
