The project team is dedicated to improving support for children on the move in Ukraine. To achieve this, a comprehensive process will be developed, accompanied by a thorough consultation and training phase. These efforts aim to enhance the protection and well-being of vulnerable children affected by displacement and war in the region.

1. Case Registration:

A systematic and efficient method for registering cases has been put in place, ensuring that all relevant information is recorded accurately. In the context of children on the move as a result of the war, the case registration process plays a vital role in safeguarding their well-being. It entails promptly reporting any concerns about a child who might be at risk of harm or experiencing significant hardship and deprivation due to the ongoing war. To effectively identify and locate children on the move, the team has proactively engaged in meetings with various stakeholders. They have collaborated with the police, administrators of different internally displaced people’s facilities, and hospitals. These meetings were conducted with the specific purpose of gathering information and insights about the whereabouts of the children. Any member of the professional team is empowered to initiate the case registration, ensuring that no child’s situation goes unnoticed. Once a case is registered, the relevant data is forwarded to the dedicated social workers responsible for conducting the initial screening of the child’s needs. These social workers are in the process of continuing training to assess the child’s immediate requirements and identify any urgent interventions required to ensure their safety and well-being. This streamlined process enables a swift and coordinated response, prioritizing the needs of these vulnerable children and providing them with the necessary support and assistance provided by the center.

2. Initial Screening of Needs:

A structured process has been developed to conduct initial screenings of individuals’ needs, enabling the team to identify urgent requirements and prioritize assistance accordingly. For the initial screening process, we have developed a comprehensive tool and methodology. However, to ensure its effective application in practice, ongoing training is essential for the professional team. Continuous training will enable them to gain the necessary skills and expertise required to implement the screening effectively. To support the initial screening efforts, the psycho-social team will be supplemented by additional members, collaborating with doctors from the district hospital. This collaboration will enhance the team’s capabilities and allow for a more holistic assessment of the children’s needs, considering both psychological and medical aspects.

3. Emergency Plan:

An emergency plan has been meticulously designed, detailing the precise actions to be taken in response to critical situations that may endanger the lives of children. This well-structured plan ensures swift and appropriate responses during times of crisis, safeguarding the well-being of the children involved. Furthermore, a draft of the tool and methodology has been outlined to facilitate the project’s implementation. The tool and methodology will play a crucial role in effectively addressing the needs of the children on the move. Over the course of the next three months, the tool and methodology will undergo a piloting phase, during which valuable insights and feedback will be collected and incorporated. This iterative process will result in the final version of the tool and methodology, ensuring their optimal functionality and suitability for the specific requirements of the project.

4. Short-Term Plan:

A clearly defined short-term plan has been developed, outlining the specific objectives and strategies to be implemented promptly in response to the needs of the children. This plan provides a focused and efficient approach to addressing their immediate requirements and ensuring that appropriate actions
