When it is in the best interests of the child, suitable and agreed with the relevant authorities, we provide alternative care in family-like care and other forms of alternative care such as fosterage and community integration.

To find the best possible alternative care option for each child, we constantly innovate and improve our work and explore relevant care solutions together with partners.

If it is in the best interests of a child to return to the Family of origin, we actively support and carefully accompany this process.

We ensure that a child has access to care, accommodation, education and skills, protection and social inclusion, food security, physical health, and social and emotional well-being.

Cumulatively, the Family Like Care programme has impacted 680 children and young people since 1994.

We are committed to ensuring the safety of children and young people, the protection of their rights, and that they are treated with dignity and respect to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for them.

We work in accordance with the 2010 Child Care Protection and Justice Act, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children.
