The Family Care Authority (FCA) has launched a unified outreach initiative under the name One Family, uniting and centralising all FCA's community outreach and engagement efforts, ranging from community events and activations to workshops and training programmes. 

The initiative aims to allow individuals to easily access and understand FCA's wide range of services while creating awareness of the authority and its services. The initiative also underscores the FCA's commitment to positively impacting familial bonds and safeguarding the community's collective family unit by improving the quality of life and wellbeing of families in Abu Dhabi.

Her Excellency Dr Bushra Al-Mulla, Director-General of the FCA, said: “The One Family initiative, as per the FCA’s strategic vision and in alignment with the Abu Dhabi Family Wellbeing Strategy, aims to promote a sense of belonging among community members. With a focus on empowering individuals, raising community awareness, promoting health, and preserving nature, this initiative seeks to make our community outreach efforts more accessible to the wider public.

“By supporting our partners and stakeholders in their outreach endeavours, we strive to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange. The One Family initiative is reflective of our commitment to coordinating various social sector entities and supporting them in their community outreach efforts.”

The Family Care Authority provides community outreach initiatives to community members through its collaborative partnerships with organisations from both the public, third and private sectors, including the Department of Community Development (DCD), the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH), the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK), UAE Independent Climate Change Accelerator (UICCA), Emirates Blood Donation Society, and the UAE Equestrian and Racing Federation (UAEERF), and others.

One Family will initially roll out its efforts, alongside its partners the DMT and the Municipal Community Center (MCC), in the Al Falah district, introducing diverse activities to support parents and caregivers, empower children, enhance teacher expertise to monitor substance use and addiction cases, and report and manage them. The initiative is set to expand into other neighbourhoods through a phased strategic approach, reflecting the FCA's dedication to creating a sustainable positive impact on communities and aligning with its vision of nurturing resilient families across the emirate.
