The first meeting of the Children's Committee of the Child and Youth Protection Centre, which we nicknamed the "Little Committee", was held on Wednesday, 3 May 2017. It was attended by a small number of children (aged 7-11) – four girls, because some of the members were sick and others celebrated their birthdays. However, it did not prevent us from working and having fun.
On the occasion of the World Day for Child Abuse Prevention (November 19th) and International Children’s Day (November 20th) in Split, in the City Library Marko Marulić, the Family Center Split has organized lectures for experts working with children from different systems. A lecture on “Children and Parents Within Families in Need of Help ” was held by doc.dr.sc. Bruna Profaca from the Child and Youth Protection Center of Zagreb for more than a hundred gathered.
Prior to this lecture, social worker Blaženka Klarić presented the emerging program “Let’s grow together-us too”, implemented by a Family Center branch. The aim of these lectures was guiding the experts on the importance of recognizing the risk factors in childhood and preventive action in order to protect the well-being and encourage the development of children.
