About Us

Our vision is of a society where children can grow up strong, safe and happy, where parents and caregivers can create the best possible family setting, so that no child suffers.

Last year, our dedicated team of over 200 staff and volunteers reached over 47,000 children and individuals through protection, adoption, foster care, residential care, education and training work.

Since 1909, Jo’burg Child Welfare has played a pivotal role in child care and protection strategies across the country. Nationally we advise on legislation to protect children, and through advocacy work we ensure children have a voice to influence services which affect them. We support those who have no where else to turn.
