Volume 1, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1562-1383



The National Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) was originally formed in 1994 to inform the government on the child protection section of a White Paper on Social Welfare and Development. However, it pursued its mission beyond this initial task and initiated the National Strategy on Child Abuse and Neglect (NSCAN). This article deals with the structures established, strategies employed and the work done at provincial and regional levels under the auspices of the NCCAN and the Institute for Child and Family Development of the University of the Western Cape.
