State Projects on Alternative Care Demonstrable Models
About the Programme
A national study by Udayan Care supported by UNICEF and Tata Trusts in 2019, recommended the urgent need for demonstration models of care, work with local organisations and functionaries in building their capacities towards a non-institutional care approach, within the principle of the best interest of children, and to focus on the continuum of care approach to support during the Aftercare phase using the ‘Sphere of Aftercare’ intervention framework.
UNICEF in India has supported Udayan Care since 2014 in advancing the work on alternative care in India. The project is in continuation of the previous work done together with support from UNICEF, and also the project on aftercare being implemented in the state of Bihar and together will push the agenda of Alternative Care, especially Aftercare, both at policy and practice levels in Madhya Pradesh.
