Circles of support for caregivers in North West

Lessons from the Family & Community Motivator Programme

Ilifa supported the testing of the Family & Community Motivator (FCM) Home Visiting Programme, developed by ELRU, in North West province over more than five years. The programme demonstrated the importance of home visiting as part of a continuum of support for young children and their caregivers.

This article describes the programmes and its goals, and discusses the shifts in practice during the implementation period.
