Kenya National Care System Assessment

The government of Kenya is committed to moving away from institutional care towards family and community-based care. To support the oversight and implementation of the contents of the Children’s Act, Kenya has established the National Council for Children’s Services (NCCS) as the policy-making, coordination, regulatory, advocacy and advisory body and the Department of Children’s Services (DCS) the mandated government body to implement children’s services, including care. This assessment reviewed 13 priority areas within the Guidelines for Alternative Family Care for Children in Kenya (2014) and presents findings and recommendations that have validated by a Care Reform Core Team. The intention is for NCCS to use the finding to develop the Kenya National Care Reform Strategy and also for NCCS partners to identify high priority actions in care reform agenda in Kenya.
