The Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) plans to place less focus on institutional care as an option for children rescued from abusive situations.Head of the agency in a recent interview with the Government Information Agency (GINA) explained that the CCPA in 2016 will pay particular attention, not only to supporting suitable alternatives when placement is necessary for children, but also working to support the de-institutionalisation of those children already in the system.The latter objective will see particular emphasis being placed on building the capacity of the parents of these children to better take care of, and provide for their children. This is because most of the reported cases to the agency are that of neglect, Greene explained.During this year, the agency has done much towards this goal of de-institutionalising care. In 2015, it provided assistance to over 7000 families and by doing so prevented approximately 2000 children from being separated from their families.

Focus has always been on placing the children in a family-like setting, with the first recourse being placement with a kinship. “If we can find a relative, we will place a child with a relative, if a relative is not available we would look in our core list of foster parents to see if a foster parent is available and then we would place the child in that because that is a family- based care,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, and that is what we would like for a child that must be placed in alternative care,” she explained.Unfortunately a number of children had to be placed in institutions because of the non-availability of foster parents.

Greene said that the agency is trying to adopt a changed approach, to get persons to regard children differently.“No child deserves to be abused and child abuse is not just the responsibility of child care agency. It is the responsibility of every adult,” she reiterated.
