Preventing and Combatting Child Maltreatment


The ERICA (2019-2021) is an EU funded project, whose key aim is to prevent and combat child maltreatment by building the expertise of frontline professionals working with minors living in families where there is a risk of child maltreatment. The project aims to develop a mobile application for parents' and professionals' to use when assessing the risk of child maltreatment.  The work is evidence-based, with systematic literature searches and analyses conducted on child maltreatment risk, risk assessment tools and experiences of children and families on child welfare and protection services.
