We provide home visits, crisis intervention and a family preservation programme. This includes skills development, parenting skills, support groups, and intensive support for dysfunctional families to prevent the removal of children from them wherever possible.
There is a lack of facilities in which children can be placed when they do have to be removed from their homes. Foster care is the preferred form of substitute care for children who are not available for adoption. Witkoppen Clinic assists with recruiting and training new foster parents.
Prospective foster parents
The following is an overview of the requirements and training necessary to become a foster parent.
The process to become a foster parent can take up to 8 weeks and involves screening, training, and assessment.
Please note that the training to become a foster parent is compulsory for you and your partner.
