This paper draws on EveryChild's programmes in 17 countries, and on an extensive literature review and consultations with over 400 children.1 It argues that in addition to urgent reform of child care systems, it is also essential that those working in fields such as social protection, juvenile justice, health and education recognise the importance of children without parental care. In short, children without parental care must be mainstreamed, rather than missing from the international development agenda.
