Commissioner in Yaroslavl Region took children’s home reformation process under personal control

25 August 2015

In view of the coming reforms, Commissioner for Human Rights in Yaroslavl Region Sergei Baburkin visited specialised childern’s homes No. 1 and No. 2 in Yaroslavl. He is ready to take part in resolution of any problems that may arise during the transfer of the facilities to the new format.

"Children’s homes should not be more than just a temporary measure of pre-family maintenance. Stepwise reduction and elimination of the facilities and transfer of children to families are required not only by the international community, but by our life," Mr Baburkin underscores.

According to the legislative amendments that are to take effect from 1 September 2015, all children’s homes in Russia shall adopt a new format and become similar-to-family institutes. It is supposed that one apartment will be a home for children of different age, sex, and health status, comprising not more than 8 minors in total. They will be supervised by a limited number of staff that can be replaced only for the term of sick leave, vacation or due to termination of employment.
