Globally millions of adults with big hearts and good intentions are caring for vulnerable children. Sounds great right?

Here’s the catch: Many of those adults have little to no training in what vulnerable children need to survive and thrive. The result? Children are often harmed not helped.

That’s where SFAC comes in. Our team of expert social workers, therapists, lawyers and judges train adults all over the world. We work with anyone who cares for, works with, or makes decisions about children with the aim of turning those good intentions into good practice so children can thrive.

So welcome to our little corner of the internet where we’re all about seeing you, and those you care for (personally or professionally), thrive.

Let’s get started!

“SFAC’s support and work cannot be overstated. SFAC have trained our social workers and provided advice on how to make safe decisions for our children. The training is invaluable to our social workers and is enabling them to become more confident and able practitioners. We are now confident in our own skills thanks to SFAC’s support.”

“When SFAC came to CALM Africa in 2011, it was the turning point in our understanding for the best place for a child to grow. There were lots of families and children struggling. We were trying to help but we did not want to build an orphanage. We wanted to do something different but we didn’t know what. Thanks to SFAC’s training and support, CALM Africa now champions the promotion of Community Based Foster Care in Uganda and we are consulted by different organisations to share
our model!"

"Each time we talk to SFAC, we try to present a case that they cannot solve. We have failed every time!"
