The Armenian Child Protection Network (CPN) and Foster Parents’ Association (FPA) have started the implementation of a research project on the provision and accessibility of social services provided to target families in all regions of Armenia, as well as Yerevan city in order to support reforms in social protection and family preservation mechanisms.

The Child Protection Network and Foster Parent’s Association will advocate for the improvement of social services provided to target families at local, regional, and national levels. The project will also promote civil society organisation’s role in supporting the right of the children to live in families, promoting models of alternative family care and the provision of social services. A comprehensive research will be conducted on the provision and accessibility of social services to families of alternative family care models throughout Armenia. 

The eight months project has started in June 2017 and is implemented with the financial assistance of the European Union and the Austrian Development Cooperation.
