The Cape Town Child Welfare Society (CTCWS), is the 1st and is the oldest Child Protection Agency in South Africa. Established in 1908, CTCWS has been serving the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and families in Cape Town for an uninterrupted 113 years! CTCWS is a non-profit organisation registered with the Department of Social Development as a Child Protection Agency.
Since 1908, we have helped over a million children emerge from crisis situations ranging from drug/alcohol abuse, poverty, homelessness and crime, to severe neglect and physical and sexual abuse.
Our intake unit responds to children in crisis and is similar to the casualty unit at a hospital which has a highly pressurized working environment. It therefore requires experienced and caring staff complement who are able to think on their feet in crisis situations.

We believe in a bright future for South Africa. A Rainbow Nation proud and embracing of its cultures & communities. A country richer for its diversity. The historical fishing village of Hout Bay reflects many aspects of South Africa today. There are many socio-economic issues within some of the areas, with high unemployment leading to drugs and crime which is on the increase – contrasting with an increase in wealth in other areas within the valley. Unfortunately due to the economic challenges and geographic separation there are very few opportunities for the communities to mix. This is where HBUFC comes in!
