Shortage of screened foster parents and places of safe care in Roodepoort

Posted on: 19 Aug 2014  |   Author: Roodepoort Child Welfare

Traumatised, neglect and abused children must, in most cases, be removed from the care they were in when the abuse happened. At Child Welfare South Africa, Roodepoort, we need Places of Safe Care (temporarily) until the Court Hearing has been dealt with.

After finalisation of court proceedings these children will need more long term care in the form of screened Foster Parents.  It is a huge responsibility to take care of someone else’s child, but we need families who will open their doors for children who did not ask to be abused, neglect or traumatised.  This is a direct service you render to that specific child in order to give him/her the warm loving family he/she never experienced. 

This office will assist you with any queries regarding becoming a Place of Safe Care or a Foster Parent.  We will train you to understand the developmental phases of a child’s life as well as how to deal with a child who is in need of care and protection.  Foster parents do receive a monthly grant to assist with the extra expenses.
