Our focus is to protect and uphold the rights of our community’s children.
We advocate on behalf of our children, who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or orphaned, to place them in an environment in which both their physical and emotional wellbeing is developed so as to give these children an opportunity for a better future.
The Greater Benoni Child Welfare has been in existence since the 1920’s.
The offices were originally in Harpur Avenue, Benoni. The Society moved into the current premises in Northmead, Benoni is 1983. Colin House, our Child & Youth Care Centre was opened in 1992 and extended in 2003 to cater for 20 children. Demand for services resulted in a permanent office being opened in Daveyton. Our caseload fluctuates between 1390 and 1450 families.

As an Organisation, we collaborate with Government as well as other non-government organisations in our area.
