About the webinar series

Many countries in Europe are now moving quickly towards establishing, developing and expanding their Barnahus or similar services. As this momentum builds, the field of knowledge and experience is growing.

The PROMISE Webinar Series extends an open invitation to join the discussions and exchanges within the European Barnahus Movement.

During PROMISE 1, select professionals from around Europe were invited to participate at the PROMISE project exchange meetings. These meetings featured lectures, trainings and discussions on the key principles, standards, and challenges to consider when opening and operating a multi-disciplinary and interagency collaboration for child victims and witnesses of violence.

This Webinar Series will revisit and expand on topics covered in PROMISE 1 for a public audience. The Webinar Series will also dynamically respond to questions as they arise, offer scheduled chat rooms for select topics, and even share best practices and lessons learned from the activities of the PROMISE 2 Project.

The language of the webinars will be in English. A smart way to engage in national level advocacy and to include non-English speaking colleagues is to watch the webinars together or even plan a short meeting around the webinar.

The From 0 to Barnahus webinar series is co-organised with Terre des Hommes, a PROMISE partner, as part of the ChildHub’s child protection webinar series. PROMISE is co-funded by the European Commission.
