Description of call
"Action grants to support transnational projects aiming to build capacity for professionals in child protection systems and legal professionals representing children in legal proceedings"

This call for proposals will support capacity building for professionals in child protection systems and legal professionals/practitioners representing children in judicial proceedings, by promoting good practices in the development of training modules grounded in EU and international standards and in rolling out training in the participating countries. Priority will be given to projects that focus on or explicitly include a majority of children from vulnerable groups.


All projects should not only develop a sound methodology using recognized existing good practice or tried and tested intervention models, but also consist of a large proportion of concrete and practical delivery to the specific target groups identified, ultimately to improve children's experience of the judicial and child protection systems. All projects under this call must be aligned with Article 24 of the Charter of fundamental rights of the EU and the UN Convention on the rights of the child (UNCRC) and pay particular attention to implementation of Article 12 UNCRC.


This call will fund activities for three priorities focusing on different types of target groups:


  • Priority 1: Target group A: Capacity-building for practitioners/professionals working with or for children in alternative care or detention,
  • Priority 2: Target group B: Capacity-building for lawyers/legal advisers representing children in criminal, administrative and civil justice,
  • Priority 3: Target group C: Capacity-building for legal and other practitioners such as social and health workers, youth workers and the police to pilot and roll out multi-disciplinary evidence-based child-friendly practices in the area of diversion.
