The Good Enough Guide
Tool 8: How to assess child-protection needs
This basic checklist can be used in the different areas in which you work or plan to work. It can be further adapted to assess protection needs for other vulnerable groups too. See pages 59–62 for other resources and checklists.
1. Are there any reported cases of children:
- killed in this disaster
2. Are there groups of children without access to:
- health care
3. Have these cases been reported? To which organisation?
4. Are there any reported cases of
- separated children
- families with missing children
- children sent away to safe places?
5. Have families generally moved as a group?
6. Are there groups of children living together without adults? Do they include children less than five years of age?
7. Are there individual adults who have assumed care responsibility for a large group of children?
8. List any organisations taking care of separated children.
9. Are there other serious protection and care concerns for girls not already identified above?
