FAMILY SUPPORT INTERVENTION ORGANISATION (FSIO) Inc.

Welcome

The Family Support Intervention Organization FSIO (Inc.) is a registered charity established in June, 2016, by a Board of eight trustees.

 

The FSIO (Inc.) Board of Trustees are experienced, highly qualified professionals most of whom have a background in child development, parenting, family support, psychology, psychiatry, medicine, social work, policing or counselling

 

The FSIO (Inc.) was developed in response to the consistent public outcry over child injuries and deaths in Barbados and the urgent need to assist with the protection of children through family education, empowerment and support.

 

Our Board, members and volunteers are drawn from a wide cross-section of the community. We will continue to welcome members and volunteers that can help us to execute the programme in homes, work places and in the local communities.

You can do your part to help children live free from abuse. Contact our affiliate

Crime Stoppers Barbados Hotline service for guidance.
