BADISA delivers a continuum of services, designed to care for and protect children and strengthen families. 

 

These services include prevention, early intervention, statutory and re-uniting services.

 

 

 

Prevention

BADISA Stilbaai works on the premise that prevention is better than cure.

 

A variety of projects are aimed at educating and raising awareness among our society about the following:

  • Rights and responsibilities of parents

  • Rights and responsibilities of children

  • Indicators of child abuse and neglect

  • Reporting of child abuse and neglect

  • Teaching children how to protect themselves against abuse and neglect

 

 

Early Intervention Services

  • Identifying children who are in high risk circumstances

  • Assessing the impact of abuse and neglect on these children’s wellbeing

  • Referral to therapeutic services

  • Improving parenting skills by social work interventions and parent guidance programs

  • Provision of food and clothing to children and families in need

  • Group sessions at schools for children with behavioral problems

  • Group work with children aimed at enhancing life-skills

  • Children’s after-care facility (Ouma Lena se Huis)

  • ECD facility (Seesterretjies)

 

 

Statutory Work

  • Provision of protection services to abused and/or neglected children, by removing them from the perpetrator or family

  • - Social worker court work, including assessments, court appearances and placement of children in alternative care, foster homes or youth care centers

 

 

Re-Uniting

  • - Reintegration of children who were removed from their families, back into communities-of-origin by placement with a suitable family within their community

  • - When children cannot be re-united with their biological families or communities-of-origin, alternative family placements are sourced, with a view to providing a sense of permanence, belonging and stability for them

  • This includes placement of children into foster-care until reaching 18 years-old or adoption
