We recognize the importance and benefits of children maintaining health connections with their families and communities, and facilitating community access for the children in our care is a critical elements of best practice.
Wherever it is safe to do so, children are given the opportunity to have access to their families. Because of this, we start family visitation and assessment within the first two weeks of a girl arriving at our home. Where it is safe to do so, we have supervised family visitation while we assess and work towards the ultimate goal of seeing each girl reintegrated back to her family. For girls whose families live locally in Phnom Penh, we are able to facilitate a minimum of fortnightly supervised family visits while for those in the provinces, it is a monthly visit.
