    Description
    The social and child welfare and protection system implemented by the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare of Montenegro is oriented towards the development of social and child protection services to prevent the separation of children from their biological families, guarantee alternative forms of care and achieve reintegration, wherever possible by its international commitments. Ending institutionalisation has been a priority for Europe and is also one of the conditions for accession to the European Union. Experts from Hungary, Croatia, Sweden, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands mobilised by SOCIEUX+ supported the Institute for Child and Social Welfare in the development of a Foster Care Action Plan and the design of a curriculum for the Institute's social workers on foster care competencies.

    Description
    In Kazakhstan, the Commissioner for Children’s is engaged into deinstitutionalization reform as a lead of a consortium of NGOs, childcare institutions, and state administration. Professional foster families are considered an alternative to institutional placement for children without parental care. Through the peer-to-peer cooperation with the experts from Croatia and the Czech Republic, a set of methodological guidelines was developed with recommendations for different stages of working with foster families, from identification and selection to continuous support and evaluation. The outputs of the action also include the training curricula for prospective foster parents elaborated on the basis of EU countries best practices and good examples from Kazakhstan organizations. Finally, the action was an occasion for the partners to discover the practical set up of alternative care and services provision for vulnerable children during a study visit to Czech Republic (Prague, Pardubice).
