CELCIS was contracted by UNICEF Albania in August, 2013, to carry out an evaluation of the pilot foster care project (FCPP). UNICEF had contributed to funding for a foster care project which operated in Tirana and Shkodra. The operational aspects of the projects were run by two non-governmental organisations called Bethany Social Services and Every Child Albania.

FCPP had made a positive start to establishing foster care services in Albania. Training, procedures and support systems for 80 families had been provided.
