The Equal Partners Foundation, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, continues to work in Floriana, Malta, helping disabled youth. The project gives support to 184 children and young people with disabilities and to their families, with the main aim of offering them the resources to enable them to take control of their lives.
The Foundation works with various professionals, together with the parents, to provide assessments of each case, which help provide the necessary background to create the optimal framework for each one, according to the needs and level of support required.
The program aims to create a positive impact on the lives of the young people and their families and provide them with preparation for their adult life. Independence, quality of life, social inclusion, and self-determination are its fundamental principles.
The Equal Partners Foundation has been giving support to the disabled since 1998. During this time, It has grown from its original 12 founding members, all from families with a disabled child, to more than 300 partners.
