Design and implement integrated programmes and services that provide for the development, care and protection of the rights of children.


The purpose of the sub - programme is to ensure care and protection of children.



Child and Youth care center is a facility for the provision of residential care to more than 6 children outside the child's family

must include a therapeutic program aimed at addressing the specific needs of the child.

The MEC must provide funding for child and youth care centers in the province. These facilities must be registered and comply
with the national norms and standards according to section 194 of the Children's Act No. 38 of 2005.

There are currently 11 CYCC’s registered and funded in the Northern Cape Province. Funding is allocated to meet the physical
needs of the children as well as subsidies for the salaries of social workers rendering therapeutic programmes.
