Department of Children's Services - Republic of Kenya

This guide provides an overview of the principles and practices of case management for reunification and placement of children outside of parental care (e.g., children from Charitable Children’s Institutions (CCIs) and Statutory Children’s Institutions (SCIs) , and street-connected children) into family- and community-based care. It details standard operating procedures (SOPs) and provides associated relevant job aids. This Guidebook is further accompanied by the Caseworker’s Toolkit: Case Management for Reintegration of Children into Family or Community Based Care. Together, the Guidebook and Toolkit provide comprehensive guidance and the practical tools needed to plan, implement, and monitor individual children placed into family- and community-based care, to ensure complete reintegration.
