It also features an interview with the author about the Lighthouse, the turning points to launching the service, her motivation to persevere on the long journey to launching it, and what to expect in the future. Special speakers who had a key role in the process to launching the service bring extra insight.
The Barnahus roadmap guidance and template gives inspiration on how to document and communicate the strategy and progress towards establishing and operating a Barnahus, and for executing and monitoring the national Barnahus strategy. A simple and accessible format, the roadmap template facilitates: interagency agreement and internal alignment so that everyone works in a coordinated way towards the same goal; the exploration and planning of different options, scenarios and activities; and the communication of your vision and strategy to an external audience.

PROMISE Barnahus Network
The Network is a formalisation of the European Barnahus Movement, which was launched in June 2017 in the presence of the EU Commissioner for Justice and Consumer Rights, and the UN Special Representative on Violence against Children. The launch of the movement confirmed Barnahus as a good practice, validated the Barnahus model as a widely accepted concept and consolidated the European network of Barnahus staff and interested government officials and practitioners.
