About Us

Children are kept safe by quality services which help kids and families when and where they need it.  Fams makes this possible by advocating for better public policy, advising how to achieve sustainable outcomes and acting to help vulnerable children, young people, families and communities.

At Fams we advocate, advise and act.

Established in 1981, Fams has always been driven by strong values and our aim:

  • Safe Children
  • Strong Families
  • Supportive Communities

We contribute to population outcomes through:

  • Building skills and knowledge in outcomes-based frameworks to enable organisations to collect and use data to inform practice and collaborate to provide better results for clients, practitioners and organisations; and
  • Systematic policy and advocacy to inform and enable the government to implement solutions that support vulnerable children, families and communities.
