COVID-19 pandemic is the latest most disruptive occurrence in the world today. Public health measures put in place by the Kenyan government to prevent the spread of the virus has had immediate and may have long term effects on families and children in particular. Currently, case and social workers have deferred visits to families, children and care institutions due to public health restrictions. We believe planning should begin immediately on how we will facilitate the care and protection of children after public health measures are lifted. To ensure that children sustainably remain in family care post COVID 19, recovery and long-term plans must be adequately informed. The purpose of this survey is therefore to not only understand how families and children have been affected but investigate the best ways to provide sustainable support and services for children including those in at-risk families, those undergoing reintegration and those still in care institutions; with the ultimate aim of retaining children in families after the pandemic.
