Study on child abuse, violence and neglect to be released by Minister Fritz
Tomorrow (02 June 2016), to commemorate International Children’s Day and national Child Protection Week in a meaningful way, Minister Albert Fritz will release the findings of the national study into child abuse, violence and neglect.
The study is a partnership between the UBS Optimus Foundation, the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention, and the University of Cape Town.
The findings will have a profound impact on the work of the Western Cape Department of Social Development.
The study will provide the first-ever nationally representative figures on child maltreatment. It will be crucial in assisting the Western Cape Department of Social Development (DSD) to continuously improve our Child and Families Programme, which receives our highest funding allocation at R615.1-million.
There will be an opportunity for photos and interviews.
