The Barnahus Quality Standards is not just our hero document – it is also the publication which current and aspiring Barnahus from 22+ countries have contributed to and/or are currently implementing.
The Standards contain concrete guidance for child-centred and effective collaboration, along with the legal support and real-life examples for each standard. They are an indispensable tool for building a common understanding around why and how to establish a Barnahus.
Many countries have had success by arranging a series of events to educate and generate dialogue, and using the Standards as their starting point.
In conjunction with your event, we can send one or two top European experts to support your event by presenting the Barnahus Quality Standards and answering questions.
Activities could include:
An introduction to the standards, to a broad stakeholder audience, supporting the idea of Barnahus and raising awareness.
A deeper dive into each of the standards, with the aim of supporting decisionmakers and policymakers to use the standards in their work to create an enabling environment for Barnahus.
Training sessions on thematic areas, diving into a small selection of the standards, geared towards a professional group or a multidisciplinary team. Can be in combination with other PROMISE trainings or a study visit.
