Integrated services among organizations working with and for families is a hot topic- for policy makers, researchers and practitioners. In many countries the model of Family Centers is at the forefront.

Working in an integrated manner offers many opportunities (e.g. addressing fragmentation, higher accessibility to services for families, sharing expertise between professionals, better responses to actual needs …). However, there are also challenges.

In order to capture the opportunities and the challenges that arise in different countries, we want to set-up an international platform where capacity building and strengthening professional expertise on integrated services is central.

The focus of the pre-conference is on accessibility of integrated services. The objective is to stimulate discussion; sharing expertise and knowledge among different countries. Hence, participants of the conference can visit inspiring practices. Interactive discussion methods will be used in order to stimulate the exchange of ideas.
