On 10 May 2018 a workshop for more than 35 prosecutors from different counties in Hungary was organised regarding legislation related to Barnahus. PROMISE expert Margrét Unnur Rögnvaldsdóttir, a prosecutor from Iceland, was on hand to share the Icelandic experience. At the workshop, results from the pilot project in Szombathely were presented, including that the investigative and judicial phases have been shortened in 4 cases of child abuse. As a result of the workshop, legislative amendments needed for full implementation of the Barnahus model will be developed. The workshop was organised back-to-back with an international child protection conference.

The workshop was organised by Barnahus Szombathely as part of the PROMISE 2 project.
