Our Impact

Care for Children's work has resulted in an estimated one million orphans and vulnerable children growing up in families instead of institutions.

As well as ensuring good quality family-based alternative care is provided when children cannot live with their birth family, Care for Children also advocates that a healthy child welfare system will need to include family strengthening and family reunification to ensure children can remain with their birth families when possible.



To date Care for Children has worked with five national governments.
We work alongside both national and local government authorities to ensure systemic change, country-wide impact, and sustainability.


Care for Children has received invitations and enquiries from 17 countries from across the world.
Our new digital training tool called My Family will enable us to expand to new regions and achieve our vision to see 'a world of children in families'.


Care for Children has trained 359 residential care institutions globally.
We enable institutions to develop family placement programmes, alongside a range of specialist services for the community.


Since Care for Children was established, our expert training teams have trained nearly 10,000 child welfare staff globally.
This training covers the whole process of safely placing, monitoring, and supporting a child in a family.


We aim to build the capacity of existing government child welfare staff. It is estimated that 90% of those trained are women.
This training enables women to build their confidence and self-esteem, as well as improving career prospects.


Care for Children has influenced the implementation of 10 pieces of child welfare legislation globally.
This has significantly increased our impact across nations, facilitating our work at the grassroots level.
