Policy Brief: A Disability-Inclusive Response to COVID-19

The global crisis of COVID-19 is deepening pre-existing inequalities, exposing the extent of exclusion and highlighting that work on disability inclusion is imperative. People with disabilities—one billion people— are one of the most excluded groups in our society and are among the hardest hit in this crisis in terms of fatalities. Even under normal circumstances, persons with disabilities are less likely to access health care, education, employment and to participate in the community.

Put Children First: Recommendations to End Orphanage Volunteering and the Institutionalisation of Children

It is estimated that at least 5.4 million children live in institutions worldwide. Yet over 80% of these have at least one living parent. Research has shown the harm of orphanage care on children’s health, development and wellbeing and how orphanage volunteering is working to perpetuate these institutional systems which separate children from their families and communities. There is now a global movement to end both practices.

These key policy recommendations were published as part of the "Put Children First: End Orphanage Care" campaign.

Seen, Counted, Included: Using data to shed light on the well-being of children with disabilities

Millions of children with disabilities around the globe continue to be left behind, despite the near-universal ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the call for action embedded in the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the clear mandate set by the Sustainable Development Goals. Often, this neglect is the result of limited data. When absent from official statistics, children and adults with disabilities remain politically and socially ‘invisible’, increasing their marginalization and exposure to rights violations.

A Psychosocial Support Toolkit for Social Workers

This toolkit is based on a review of the most recent research evidence around the psychosocial needs of forcibly displaced children and youth and discussions with social workers. It encourages a group approach to psychosocial support because the reality is that there are few psychosocial professionals available for displaced communities which makes individual counselling difficult. The toolkit is written to be read directly by social workers either alone or in groups. It can also form part of a training and we have given suggestions for trainers throughout the text.
