Grant amount: $188,500
Time frame: Dec 2014 – June 2016
Location: International

Better Care Network (BCN) is network of different organisations formed in 2003 in recognition of the need for concerted action to prevent unnecessary family separation and ensure the most appropriate alternative care placements for children. The mission of the Better Care Network is to facilitate active information exchange and collaboration and advocate for technically sound policy and programmatic action on global, regional, and national levels.

The aim of the project is to reduce the practice of volunteering in residential care, and enable more resources and support to be directed towards more positive models of care.
