Alternative Family Care II
REC rights of the child funded project
February 2018 – July 2019

The eighteen-month ALFACA II project started in February 2018 and aimed to improve reception and care for unaccompanied children by structurally increasing the quality and quantity of family based care for them. The project collected and spread practical knowledge about the state of the art on providing family based care for unaccompanied children in the participating countries Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece and Italy. It intented to improve family based care where it was already (scattered) practice and provided the possibility to set it up as a reasonable alternative to institutional care where it hardly exists, but opportunities and will for development are there.
