FOSTER CARE SOCIAL SERVICE PROVISION
A Model for foster care developed by „Co-participation” Association and the Department for Child Protection-Varna (Language: Bulgarian)

The need to put forward our method of work is driven by the fact that although the presence of standards for providing the “foster care” service, the methodologies the different providers use, correspond in a different way to the standards adopted by the State. Undoubtedly, the difference in methodologies would not be the cause of our anxiety, as long as it led to the development of the service itself.

CHILD ABANDONMENT PREVENTION IN ROMA COMMUNITY

The deinstitutionalization process of children care in Bulgaria will be brought off if efforts for prevention of abandonment cases are made together with moving children from institutions to family based care. It is obvious that the stream of children to the institutions cannot be limited without a systematic work towards abandonment prevention. Nevertheless, this sphere still expects development, innovations and good practices.
In reply to the necessity to reduce the cases of children abandonment and their institutionalization, we propose a preventive model resulting from our continuous work in the Roma neighborhoods in the city of Varna.

THE CHILDREN IN INSTITUTIONS
Difficulties in the deinstitutionalization process for children deprived of parental care

All forms of deinstitutionalization show that the problems related to children integration process are many and the opportunities of social workers, foster and adoptive families to cope with them are too limited. Once incentive measures for deinstitutionalization have been taken in the recent years, these problems came in the foreground and search for their solutions more and more pressing.

FOR THE MOTIVATION OF THE CANDIDATE FOSTER FAMILIES

More and more people show interest for the foster families' life and the perspectives which they offer to fostered children. Both romantic attitudes in perception of this new (but not unknown in the past) method of fostering children and skepticism based on the disbelief in the possibilities and motives of foster families dominate. The present survey is devoted to the candidate foster parents' motivation: what are the factors that influence their choices. The survey results will help the reader to give himself an answer to the question, whether foster parents are people who bring up children for money.
