Towards Quality Foster Care, Croatia


The Overall Objective of the project was:  To improve the quality of foster care services for children in Croatia, and to significantly contribute to the improvement and the implementation of rights for children in the Croatian society.

Specific Objectives were:

1. Foster parents in Croatia can make use of their own support and service network, continuing to work on the improvement of the quality of foster care in cooperation with all actors in foster care, including social workers and policy makers.

2. Foster children and youth can meet, have their opinions heard by their carers and by decision makers. Youth participation is realised in Croatia and the rights of children are respected during and after leaving care.
