The Children's Act Explained
The National Department of Social Development and UNICEF have created 3 booklets on the Children’s Act.

These are easy to read and use, simplified without the use of legal terminology.
  • Booklet 1: Children and parents – rights and responsibilities
  • Booklet 2: Prevention, intervention and care
  • Booklet 3: The courts and the protection of children
