International
2014 - 2016

Better Care Network is an international network of organisations committed to supporting children without adequate family care. They foster collaboration, research and information sharing on family strengthening and alternative care, and advocate for changes to national, regional, and global policies to improve children’s care situations. HDF’s grant funded an initiative to reduce the practice of volunteering in residential care through collective advocacy and enable more resources and support to be directed towards more positive models of care for children.
