‘Working with vulnerable children’: Listening to the views of the service providers working with street children in Istanbul
AbstractAs in other developing countries with major metropolises, ‘street children’ have constituted one of the most important problems in Turkey, particularly in Istanbul, over the last two decades. The General Directorate of Social Services and the Child Protection Agency (SHÇEK) is the state agency responsible for street children and their protection. The purpose of the study is to explore the nature and organisation of state welfare service provision for street children in Istanbul and to develop a conceptual framework of state welfare service provision for street children in Istanbul from the service providers' point of view.
