This document aims to support in determining feasibility of permanent placement and expedite family-based care in families in which children were placed quickly and without proper preparation during COVID-19 lockdown. The goal is for children to remain in their placement after the lockdown ends, if possible, or move to other family placement such as kinship or foster care as appropriate. That means completing the paperwork/procedures for placement, and avoiding readmission to child care institution (CCI) after lockdown ends.

This document is intended to support case workers through Child Protection (CP) Case Management processes during the COVID-19 outbreak response in Lebanon. CP case management is normally a long-term process which can take several months depending on the unique needs of the child, their coping mechanisms and support system. In emergencies, numerous challenges can be faced by CP case workers to provide face-to-face emotional support, in children and their families accessing services in a timely manner.
