Family care focuses on the needs of individual clients and families

* Services rendered at welfare offices are available to all in the broad community.

* The breaking up of families often is accompanied by several social problems such as poverty, the impact of HIV and Aids, crime committed by adults and children as well as alcohol and drug dependency.

* NG Welfares family retention programme focuses on the family as a core unit in the community.

* NG Welfare’s objective is to attempt to prevent the breaking up of families by means of therapeutic programmes and other methods in the social work practice.
