Important notice:

Jo’burg Child Welfare condemns the violence against women and children throughout South Africa.

We have been particularly appalled by the vicious, cruel and barbaric nature of the femicide against women and children. We support all initiatives to eradicate this social evil gripping our society.

JCW has provided child protection services to children, youth and families for the last 110 years in the greater Johannesburg area.   Through the gender based violence programme we have expanded our services to include women survivors and their families.  Professional intervention is available throughout South Africa if needed.

Please report any cases of gender based violence and child abuse to your nearest Police Station or Thuthuzela centres
