Welcome to IFCO

The International Foster Care Organisation (IFCO) is an international network dedicated solely to the promotion and support of family based foster care across the world. We are a volunteer and member based organisation providing a multi-cultural platform for young people, foster carers, social workers, academics, researchers, volunteers, media, policy makers and others to network and share information on a global basis. IFCO fully supports recent UN legislation stating that all children have the right to a family and our role is to enable the exchange of information through our conferences, consultation and networking to facilitate improvement and promotion of this model within a fostering environment.
