Reaching for home: Findings from inter-agency research on children’s reintegration
Consultant, Joanna Wedge, will present findings from desk-based research spanning the reintegration of children who have been trafficked, separated by conflict, who are living on the streets or/and in alternative care. This research provides in-depth analysis of the stages of the reintegration process; principles for good practice in children’s reintegration and next steps for further action.

This global overview of good practice in children’s reintegration will be followed by in-depth examples of two of the reintegration programmes included in the report:

JUCONI: a therapeutic approach in the reintegration of street children in Mexico
JUCONI will outline their model for the reintegration of street children in Mexico. This model uses a therapeutic approach which involves intensive support to children and families to break cycles of inter-generational violence. The presentation will include findings from longitudinal research on children’s reintegration experiences.

Retrak: Developing standard operating procedures for children’s reintegration in Africa
Retrak have developed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) on reintegration to improve the quality and consistency of the service provided to beneficiaries, to document procedures and to influence wider street child practitioner community to improve the quality of care available to all street children. Retrak’s Monitoring and Research Advisor, Jo Wakia, will explain how and why the SOPs were developed, outline what they include and how they have affected Retrak’s work.
