    Abstract

    The objective of this article is to review the results of a children’s rights study of children without parental care or at risk of loosing parental in Lithuania. In conducting the analysis, the following research methods were applied: expert interview and focus group. Analysis of the situation showed that the main problems and obstacles preventing institutions from effectively implementing the rights of children from target groups are as such: lack of qualified specialists, insufficiently developed infrastructure, value judgements in society. To ensure that children without parental care or at risk of loosing parental care grow up in a harmonious environment, provision of information and social welfare to social risk families should be continued. Additionally, the following services should be developed in the future: individual and group consultations for parents held by different specialists, parenting education, building mutual relationships, summer camps and other socio-cultural services for children. Development of the following services would be appropriate: individual and group consultations for children held by different specialists, group and individual child development activities, activities in children’s day care centres.
