Korte beschrijving:

The Government of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, is working on a new legislative Act concerning the organisation of preventive family support. In this Act, the international model of family centres is put forward and adapted to the specificity of the Flemish context.

In this contribution, we present the Flemish approach of the concept 'Family Centre' (Huis van het Kind). What is it? What are its objectives? In the second part of the text, we examine building blocks that are important in the realisation of Flemish Family Centres.
