Risky environments

The main output of ENCARE is this website, where we will provide information and resources for professionals across the EU who want to understand more about children living with parental alcohol misuse and parental domestic abuse.

In the future we hope that the work of ENCARE can include resources for children living in other risky family environments, such as parental drug problems or parental mental health problems.

What is ENCARE?

Children are frequently affected by living in a family environment where parental problems cause them harm. ENCARE, the European network for children affected by risky environments within the family, was formed in Sweden in August 1998 to develop resources to support professionals who work with such children. ENCARE is now a collaboration between 23 EU countries which, to date, has undertaken 5 projects focused on children living with parental alcohol misuse and/or parental domestic abuse.
