About the organisation

Organisation Name : Family for Every Child

Our vision, mission and goals

It’s our mission to make that happen for families through research, knowledge exchange and campaigning.

This is aligned to our three organisational goals, which remain the same as in our last strategic period. They are:

  • Enabling children to grow up in permanent, safe and caring families
  • Ensuring a range of high-quality, appropriate temporary alternative care choices for children
  • Taking steps to prevent children from having to live outside of any adult care, without the care of families or other carers, and in the interim, protecting these boys and girls
