Commitment to UFM goes beyond the projects, and it is achieved through the creation of partnerships and participating in round tables.

Building relationships, talking things through and sharing best practice creates the basis for a more welcoming country.

In Bergamo Cesvi has been participating at the coordination group on UFM set up by the town councils of the First Territorial Division together with a network of Third Sector partners. The common objective is to test an innovative model and a chain of services for the reception, legal protection and integration of UFM present in the territory. In May 2016, Cesvi started a two-year program of support towards socio-economic self sufficiency and protection of UFM thanks to the collaboration with an important nationwide company.

Cesvi is part of the Italian CRC network (Committee on the Rights of the Child) along with other 91 Third Sector bodies, working for the promotion and protection of children’s rights. In 2015 Cesvi participated in the revision of part of the Annual Report on the condition of childhood and adolescence in Italy, including that concerning UFM.

Since June 2017 Cesvi has been participating at the national coordination group on UFM, set up by the National Authority for Children and Adolescents Filomena Albano, for the enactment of the dispositions concerning voluntary legal protection prescribed by the law 47/2017.

At the European level, Cesvi deals with bodies involved with the protection of UFM through the PICUM and Eurochild platforms.
