Resources Aimed at the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect - Head Office, Cape Town

We are a community-based (CBO), non-profit organisation (NPO). We ensure that the rights of children are realised. We are widely recognised for our contribution towards creating a safe society where children are acknowledged as rights-holders and the rights of all are respected. We work towards a society where adults take responsibility for the safety of children, where children participate in the realisation of their rights and are able to achieve their full potential. At our branch our work is focused on the prevention of child victimisation and offending and the promotion of children's rights. We operate at all levels - locally, provincially, nationally and across Africa. Our work includes primary, secondary and tertiary prevention approaches to issues within the children's rights arena, including child sexual abuse; corporal and humiliating punishment; child offending, especially sexual and violent offending. We provide direct services to children and families, aimed at promoting the rights and protection of children. These direct services inform our training activities and the resources that we develop and disseminate. Resource development and training activities are aimed at improving the quality of services delivered by other organisations and institutions. Direct services, training and resource development all inform our efforts to improve policy and legislation that relates to children and families. We are open from 08:30 to 17:30, Monday to Friday. Our services are free of charge.
