The Integrated Child Protection scheme was introduced in 2009-10 with the aim to contribute to the improvement in the well being of children in difficult circumstances, as well as to the reduction of vulnerabilities to situations and actions that lead to abuse, neglect, exploitation, abandonment and separation of children from their families. This scheme is being implemented from the financial year 2009-10 through the State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations. All States/ UTs, except, Jammu & Kashmir, have signed the MOU for implementation of the scheme.

ICPS focuses on –

Any other vulnerable child (including but not limited to) – e.g. children of migrant families, children living on the streets, SCs/STs, child beggars, exploited/trafficked/drug-affected children, children of prisoners, children of women in prostitution and  children affected/infected with HIV/AIDS.
