FOCUS's final conference on the individual assessment in criminal proceedings

SAPI, together with Terre des hommes and its partners are glad to invite you to the Final International Conference of the project: FOCUS on my needs – Working together for children in Criminal Proceedings, 10 March 2022 (14:00 – 16:00 CET).


The FOCUS conference is a unique opportunity to learn more on individual assessment practices and processes of children’s needs and circumstances in criminal proceedings. We will share with the audience the finding from our national reviews in five European countries, new practical tools and resources with regard to individual assessments, such as the FOCUS Standards, practices and recommendations on how to improve the individual assessments processes at national level and how to assure sustainability. We will also launch our technical platform and e-learning course, precious learning tools for every professional working with children in contact with the law.


As we share what we have learned during these two years, we would also love to learn from you and your expertise.

You will be invited to give your inputs to formulate recommendations, to interact with children, young people and professionals with regard to individual assessments of needs and circumstances of children in criminal proceedings practices with and for children.


Building on the outcomes of FOCUS project, we would like you to join the collective efforts in bridging the gap between child protection stakeholders and to jointly work on common standards for individual assessment for children in criminal proceedings across all EU Member States.


You will receive the final agenda and registration link closer to the event.

The event will be held in English, with simultaneous translation provided in Greek, Romanian, Serbian, Dutch and Bulgarian.
