Abstract [en]

Method: The aim of this study was to explore the systematic follow up of supportive activities in non-profit organizations targeted at childrenas next of kin. Managers and group leaders were interviewed, and findings were content analysed.

Result: The findings indicated that a child focus, education, safety and trust were important. These factors were observed as the primarytasks and the key reason for being involved in supportive activities. Managers expressed concern about not retaining funding, if the organization was unable to demonstrate the effects of their activities. Namely, to enhance the health and wellbeing of children. In order to continuously develop their work most organisations explained that they used some form of system for follow up. However,there was a wide variation in how non-profit organizations worked with follow ups.

Conclusion: Overall, it was evident that there was a major need for education and support in this area.
