Take care toolkit

Source(s):  Save the Children UK (SCUK)

Take Care is a European-wide project aiming to enhance the resilience of children and young people to disasters, and enable disaster responders to meet children and young people’s needs more effectively. The programme is based on the belief that collaborating with children and communities will help build children’s resilience and ensure emergency plans are more robust, inclusive and fit for purpose in a localised context. A growing body of evidence suggests that when children are given the opportunity to share their opinions and thoughts, it can significantly contribute to reducing their vulnerability before, during and after disasters. 

This toolkit is for schools, local authorities, civil society organisations, community and youth groups. It aims:

  • To provide resources to allow others to either carry out the Take Care programme, or adapt the programme to different contexts.
  • To provide guidance around participation and child-led work.
  • To support planners, responders and policy makers in creating robust, inclusive and effective emergency plans that include and value the voices of children.

In basing its work in child rights, the programme helps to build young people’s belief in their ability to change the circumstances around them, as well as boosting their skills to research, critically evaluate and advocate.
