National Foster Care Association Malta is about caring for children in care who are part and parcel of the local community and tomorrow’s generation. Our mission is to work with all those involved in fostering in order to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people. NFCAM strives to achieve better living conditions for children and youth in residential care, by working in close collaboration with local government agencies and individuals in the field of foster care. NFCAM also supports local foster carers encouraging them to share experiences and ideas for the full benefit of the children and youth in care.
Along the years NFCAM has taken a leading role in the advocacy of vulnerable children’s fundamental rights especially in promoting the right of all children to grow up in a family which cares for them and respects their needs. The promotion of permanency and stability in these children’s placements has also become a priority as such qualities have proved to improve the outcomes among children in care and provide them with a higher chance to succeed.
