The IFCO Informer

Our prestigious magazine is filled with Foster Care news from all over the world. Apart from news about upcoming events it also provides an opportunity for members to share the developments in their country with an international public and to publish recent research in Foster Care.

Every edition of the IFCO Informer is full of news about projects and insights in what is happening in Foster Care around the world. The editorial team is very active in searching for resources and new insights worldwide and very happy to receive items for future issues.

This quarterly magazine is sent to all our members and back copies are available through the member’s section of this website. Organizations who are members of IFCO receive three copies to disseminate amongst staff.

You can obtain a single copy of the IFCO Informer on payment of £5 plus postage by emailing us at

If you are looking for specific articles or subjects, or you want to find out about the content of the latest issues, please contact IFCO today.


We are working hard on a shiny new website!

IFCO members spoke and we listened. We are currently building a new website that will be more user friendly for IFCO members and the international foster care community.

Our new website will be ready early in 2019. In the meantime you can still join, connect, learn and share at the current IFCO website. Don’t forget that you can also hang out with us on Facebook or keep up to date via Twitter

If you are an IFCO member you are cordially invited to our digital AGM on Sat the 10th November, 2018 at 2pm GMT. Email for more information.
