Facilitating the registration of Child and Youth Care Centres in South Africa

The new Children’s Act 38 of 2005 requires that all existing Child and Youth Care Centres in South Africa re-register with the Department of Social Development by April 2015.  For many of these Centres, the registration process is proving to be difficult and costly to navigate, thereby potentially preventing them from continuing to offer a vital service to children in need of care and protection. The Centre for Child Law, Kid’s Haven and Epworth Children’s Village shed some light on these challenges and present recommendations for how these might be addressed. Read the article here.

    I would like to find out how to register as a CYCC.
    Is it linked to persons or a facility?
    We do have our Form 39 but would like to be able to take in more children in need.

    Need advice and guidance.
