Child Wellbeing Service

The Child well-being service consists of a team of Social workers and Social auxiliary workers who receives referrals via the other two Khula programmes. This team manages a smaller cohort of learners to enable them to do in-depth work to speed up the support and intervention process.

 

This preventative and therapeutic service follows a holistic approach, doing multidisciplinary work in collaboration with Designated Child Protection Organisations as well as other NGO’s providing support services outside of our scope of practice.

 

Referred children receive a comprehensive needs and risk assessment which will serve as baseline information.  A support plan is compiled stipulating the support services needed to reduce risk and activate community “safety nets”. This happens by the identifying of protective factors to get in place while parallel child protection processes are activated and pursued.
