Our road to 2020
Our ambition - as outlined in our Global Strategy 2020 - is to be the networked expert organisation for psychosocial wellbeing for children affected by conflict. This process will see us collaborate with organisations across the world to ensure that our work has maximum impact. We intend to reach one million children annually through our programmes - and millions more through our networks.
Research and Development will support the development and evaluation of our Care System. This research agenda helps us build the necessary evidence to share these certified programme models through a network of partner organisations.
This Care System comprises nine evidence-based ‘core interventions’ incorporating psychosocial support, protection and education across differing levels of intensity. This package of interventions is supported by a series of tools and measures to both strengthen quality and allow for global replication as well as quality implementation by front line staff and volunteers.
The development of the Care System is just one step towards fulfilling our ultimate ambition - which is to significantly increase the scale of our impact around the world. This package of evidence-based interventions will in future allow us to select and certify a global network of partners and official bodies to implement our proven programme models.
We will also look to increasingly participate in academic and humanitarian networks across the world. We already play a significant role in several global networks - including the STRENGTHS consortium in support of the mental health needs of refugees - and collaborate with leading research universities including King’s College, London.
These processes offer potentially unlimited scale - and will ensure that adequate and sufficient protection and psychosocial support is offered to the millions of conflict-affected children around the world.
