TeamUp is an intervention developed by Save the Children, UNICEF and War Child to meet the urgent psychosocial needs of refugee children. Following the successful pilots and growing interest from country offices, other organisations and donors, TeamUp is now ready to scale as a global intervention.

DCHI has focused on defining the ambition, describing the different approaches to scale and aligning the different visions and ideas within the coalition.
