Deinstitutionalisation and Family-based Reintegration from Remand Homes in Uganda
An exciting challenge of this project was a focus on family-based reintegration of children in remand home- a highly vulnerable group who are often excluded from mainstream deinstitutionalisation and reintegration programmes. Retrak already has tried-and-tested Family Reintegration Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and a range of monitoring tools to measure the wellbeing of children moving into family care. However, these tools had not yet been applied in the context of children in remand homes. This project designed a capacity building approach and tools to support remand homes in the area of family reintegration and designed a monitoring system to track the quality and impact of family reintegration programmes delivered by remand homes with Retrak’s support.
