Each new member brings important experience and knowledge which enhances the Network’s ability to undertake its mission, and brings us closer to realising our vision. As a member-led organization, we eagerly want to learn from you and with you as we continue on this journey to establish Barnahus and similar services throughout Europe.
The PROMISE Barnahus Quality Standards are composed of underlying principles, specific activities and institutional arrangements that enable child-centred and effective, collaborative actions. Find out more and download the Standards in English and many other languages.
In early 2016 we met representatives from the United Kingdom at the very first networking and working meeting PROMISE. At that time, the UK was a pilot country in our project, which aimed at enabling Europe to establish a one stop shop approach as the standard approach to supporting child victims of violence. Watch this webinar to hear from all of the professional teams co-located at The Lighthouse about their work.
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.
