The project aims at promoting supported independent living as an alternative care practice for unaccompanied minors aged 15-18. Good practices regarding this type of care will be collected, exchanged and disseminated leading to the creation of a guide for the efficient provision of care to unaccompanied minors. The guide will be tested in the field by professionals, evaluated through follow-up (feedback forms) and readjusted at the end of project.

PROUD will also support the capacity building of child protection professionals and the adoption of a mentoring scheme to deal with adaptation and integration aspects of minors in the new contexts.
