Reflecting on models of support for children in places of safety: Give a Child a Family Margate and The DG Murray Trust

 

In 2011, the DGMT began to reflect more deeply on models of support for children in places of safety. We were particularly interested in models that have a strong focus on reintegrating children back into communities, as well as, on the provision of long-term post-placement support. Through a grant made to Give a Child a Family (GCF) in Margate, KwaZulu-Natal, we began testing an integrated model of Foster Care Placement and Support, aimed at demonstrating an alternative to long-term institutional placement for children. This learning brief is joint attempt by GCF and the DGMT to reflect on the GCF model, and to consider what the key elements of a successful model might be.
