Childline: Thank you to our partners

As the incidences of violence against children reported in the media escalates, leaving communities traumatised, the Childline Gauteng Board of Governors wishes to thank all our valued partners for your generous support of our services to vulnerable children: 

  • Counsellors continue to be on standby, 24/7 on the Childline toll free helpline (08000 55555) to assist the 500 000 callers per annum.  Where children are in dangerous situations we continually liaise with the SA Police Service (SAPS) and the Department of Social Development to ensure child protection services are made available
  • The Sunlight Safe House is on standby after hours to take children who are found in life threatening circumstances by the SAPS into care in the Sunlight Home Reception Centre
  • The Childline Community Based Centres in the Inner City Johannesburg, Soweto, Sebokeng, Orange Farm, Diepsloot, Katlehong and Tembisa offer counselling to thousands of families for all child related problems
  • The awareness and prevention project is offered to over 70 000 learners and teachers in schools in Gauteng

We would like to assure all our partners that despite media reports to the contrary, Childline Gauteng continues to grow our services. We are grateful for the management team’s exceptional financial controls and careful management of resources.  Despite difficult economic times our staff compliment of 48 and volunteers are dedicated to service delivery . The organisation is in a stable financial position and able to meet its obligation to the children of our province.  

This is made possible by your support and we thank you most sincerely. We hope you take pride in your participation in making our world safer for children!
