SOS parent

A special profession

Being an SOS parent is a special profession with unique duties and challenges. While it is often described as a calling and a vocation, specialised training is a key step to becoming an SOS parent.

How is an SOS family formed?

Responsibilities of an SOS parent

An SOS parent's duties include working with children's biological families and community members to ensure the rights of all children are respected. The SOS parents training, which focuses on imparting these skills, represents another step forward for the profession of SOS parent, and is a significant move towards recognising SOS parents as educational specialists in out-of-home care.

If you are interested in becoming an SOS parent, please contact the SOS Children's Villages association in your country.
