HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

ALTERNATIVE CARE, FAMILY STRENGTH-ENING AND CARE TRANSFORMATION

Are you supporting or running children’s homes, orphanages or other type of residential care services?  Would you like advice on how to safely and sustainably transition to family and community-based care for children?  I support governments, donors, NGOs, faith-based organisations and individuals through the complex process of moving away from institutional care and moving towards family and community-based care.  This is known as deinstitutionalisation or care transformation.  I also support organisations with strengthening community services and support systems to ensure that children can remain living with families.

CHILD PROTECTION, RESPONSIBLE TOURISM AND VOLUNTEERING

Are you an organisation that runs trips or sends volunteers to children’s homes or orphanages?  Do you want to explore options for more responsible engagement with children and communities?  Do you need advice on how to safely and practically transition your projects to align with best practice in child protection and international development?  I support organisations from the travel, volunteering, donor, not-for-profit, faith and education sectors to design and implement responsible projects and to manage sensitive transitions.  I also support organisations in developing advocacy campaigns and resources in these areas.
