Work has started on the assessment of the parent capacity of the families of the children placed in DMSGD - Shoumen, including the extended family, in relation to the UNICEF project "Family for every child".
The main goal is to implement an in-depth analysis of the situation of the children and their families with the aim to prepare them for reintegration, foster care and/or other social services targeted at the provision of family care for the children placed in the institution.
Within the framework of the project there will be a service for early prevention of abandonment of babies and work in the community. The service will include: prevention in risk communities, prevention of abandonment at the level maternity hospitals, family consultation, support of the families that have abandoned their children, family planning and consultation of pregnant mothers at risk of abandoning their children.
The services will be provided by the Minicipality of Shoumen through the Complex for Social Services to Children and Families in partnership with the Social Activities and Practices Institute.
