What measures are in place at each place of safety to ensure that the boys and girls are kept separate at night time?


In relation to placement of children in Temporary Safe Care formerly known as Places of Safety, it is standard practise to separate boys and girls in terms of gender and age. Child and youth care workers are supervising children on a 24 hour basis, 7 days a week. In terms of the national norms and standards for temporary safe care, programmes must promote the safety, security, dignity and well-being of children
