Child Protection in Emergency Shelters for Refugees: A checklist for temporary accommodation for children and families
The Child Protection in Emergency Shelters for Refugees: A checklist for temporary accommodation for children and families presents the most important protection requirements for refugee children, young people and their families and ensures these are met, based on tried and tested quality assessment tool, “the children’s rights check”. This checklist is intended to help operators and staff to determine the situation regarding children’s rights in a shelter, and if necessary, to quickly initiate measures to improve the situation. For this purpose, five quality areas were chosen: Protection, health, participation and the cross-cutting areas of human resources and infrastructure. To check how well you are positioned to meet the needs of children, young people and their families, we translated these categories into everyday observations. Tick off the things that are already going well and highlight the areas where you still need to make adjustments. This will allow you to recognise those areas that require further action. The check list is aimed at shelters where people stay for approximately 24 to 48 hours.
