Child Advocacy Centres (CACs), also known as Child & Youth Advocacy Centres, Children’s Houses, and Barnahus, are a common approach to improving the multidisciplinary response to abuse and violence in the lives of children and youth. Centres operate on the principle of a comprehensive system response and establishing agreed-on standards and procedures to facilitate timely communication and information sharing, as well as reducing redundancy and streamlining activities. CACs also have procedures cognizant of and sensitive to the needs of trauma-affected children and youth.
