From its regional hub in Budapest, Tdh develops and implements regional projects with partners across Europe. In Hungary we improve the access to quality services for children in contact with the law and we fight against the isolation of Roma and other vulnerable communities. We promote child-friendly, inclusive and innovative services and measures for all children.

Our key results in 2020

  • 623 children benefited from our services 

What we do


We conduct research, develop new tools and methodologies, and create opportunities for professional development in the field of child protection. Our Child Protection Hub empowers thousands of child protection specialists to collaborate, learn and advocate together, with a common aim to positively impact the lives of children in Southeast Europe. We have also set up a FabLab in Hungary, where disadvantaged groups have access to tailor-made services. By using this innovative environment of creation and skill-building, various professionals interact and work together with children and youth to enable their integration and development.


Through research, training of professionals, raising awareness and advocacy, we promote child-friendly practices for children in contact with the law. With our partners, we encourage states to apply restorative justice, use non-custodial measures for children and implement services for the prevention of delinquency and re-offending. We support practitioners to enhance procedural safeguards for children, in particular access to legal aid and multidisciplinary needs assessments for children in criminal proceedings. As member of the PROMISE Network, we support the development of Barnahus in Europe – a multidisciplinary service that provides rapid access to justice and care for child victims and witnesses of violence.
