Research and Development (R&D) is a key driver of War Child’s ambition to become the Networked Expert Organisation in the field of improving the psychosocial wellbeing of children and youth affected by armed conflict. This ambition will see us reach one million children directly each year through our own programmes - and millions more through humanitarian networks.
The War Child R&D agenda will see the creation of an integrated care and support system across all levels of a child’s life. This Care System will see the development of scientifically tested and evidence-based interventions and tools to guarantee the highest standards of quality.
The R&D agenda is designed to ensure the provision and increased scale of quality care and support to conflict-affected children around the world - both by ourselves and through our network of partner organisations.
These efforts will contribute to ensuring the increased resilience and improved psychosocial wellbeing of conflict-affected children. Our approach will also help to establish protective and supportive communities that respect the rights of children.
