A new family centre has been inaugurated to provide social assistance to the Marsalforn Community.

The centre will be managed by the Foundation for Social Welfare Services (Asylum Seekers) and is aimed at providing an important social services function to the changing needs of Marsalforn over recent years.

Families Minister Michael Falzon said that this centre will strengthen social work in Gozo and will respond to the question of today’s society realities. The Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana asked that sensitivity or privacy protection be provided to those seeking assistance at the centre.

FSWS’ Director Monsignor Joe Vella Gauci and CEO Alfred Grixti said that this place will play an instrumental role in social inclusion and invited members of civil society to work with professionals to provide key services to the community.
