PROMISE is a project based on the commitment of several European countries to strengthen “multi-disciplinary and interagency collaboration to ensure that child victims and witnesses of violence have access to Barnahus and benefit from a child-friendly, professional and effective response in a safe environment”, thus promoting a broader and more comprehensive framework of child protection.
"This document introduces ten good practice standards, the “European Barnahus Standards”, for multidisciplinary and interagency services for child victims and witnesses of violence in Europe adapted to the child. This document is a summary of the full version of the guidance which introduces the standards. The key purpose of the standards is to provide a common operational and organisational framework that promotes practice which prevents retraumatisation, while securing valid testimonies for Court, and complies with children’s rights to protection, assistance and childfriendly justice."
