Child protection Services
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children (between 0 – 18 years) identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Family Preservation Services
This core service focuses on strengthening and building the capacity of families where the children were identified as being vulnerable or at risk of removal to alternative care. Social workers council families with the hope of preserving the family unit, with the best interest of the child always being the priority.
Taltiha Cumi Child and Youth Care Centre
Temporary Safe Care and support to vulnerable, orphaned or abandoned babies and children from 0 – 10 years at Taltiha Cumi Child and Youth Care Centre.
Post violence care centres
These centres are located at hospitals where the Social Worker on site does trauma containment, to prepare victims for the forensic medical examination and the victim receives further medical treatment, psychosocial support and counselling.
This process, in a safe comforting environment, allows victims to become survivors.
