Our History

In 1990 the National Parents Society for Persons with Disability in collaboration with the National Commission for Persons with Disability and Rotary Club Malta, recognized the need for respite care and established the Foundation.

Our History

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of the Foundation is based on the individual's right to dignity, respect and privacy. By adhering to these fundamental principles, we provide a service that enhances the individual's potential and enriches his/her quality of life.


Our Aim

Our aim is to ensure that families receive adequate support and the necessary respite, so that persons with disability can remain in their family home and continue to live in their community thus avoiding institutionalization. This is done by providing persons with disability with day breaks and residential respite breaks in a healthy and safe environment. Such breaks will give the primary carer the necessary respite to continue with his/her support to their disabled family member, thus reducing stress and possible family crises.
