Services Provided by FFI

FFI works closely with Tusla, the Child and Family Agency, to provide alternative family placements for children and young people in state care.

With Tusla’s needs in mind, FFI has shaped and refined a range of high quality family-based foster care options, all with the same goal of helping all children and young people achieve their full potential and live fulfilling lives in the community.

FFI also offers a range of additional services to Tusla including fostering assessments, bespoke child care support packages and life story work.

We offer individually tailored packages of support for children, young people and their families, even if they are not in FFI foster placements.
