Message by The Chair The Board of Management continued to perform its fiduciary and strategic responsibilities, guiding the Management team through policy and strategy development. The Board continued to support and challenge the Executive management to be effective in delivering a quality service to our clients – mainly the government and end-clients who are the children at risk. Cape Town Child Welfare Society has remained relevant through its service delivery and advocacy functions and remains committed to ensure that the services we deliver to the children and families, in our areas of operation are the best possible. As has been the case in recent years, the past financial year has been equally challenging in respect of revenue generation. The deepening economic crisis continued to Cape Town Child Welfare Society

impact our organisation's ability to increase the donor funding we require to bridge the gap between the funding allocated to us by the Western Cape Department of Social Development and the total cost to the organisation of delivering the services to the communities we are contracted to provide. During the course of the year the Executive management team has cut expenditure to the bone in an effort to balance our books. While significant progress has been made we are not "out of the woods". Our heartfelt gratitude goes to our donors who displayed their confidence in us, and we assure them of excellent returns for their investments by ensuring the care and protection of all children in need. We are deeply grateful to the Western Cape Department of Social Development, and for the vital support from all our other donors, who are recorded in the donor's list in this report. We trust that The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and the Community Chest of the Western Cape both of which were unable to support our organisation in this reporting period will resume their

3


previous significant and much needed support to our organisation, with funds for operating costs. The Board is committed to improving and increasing the fundraising capacity and effectiveness of the Organisation. My sincere thanks and appreciation goes to all my fellow Board members for giving off their time and expertise voluntarily to ensure the success of Cape Town Child Welfare Society. I also wish to thank the Management, Staff and Volunteers for their tireless efforts in ensuring that the children and families in Cape Town received the vital services required to make their lives better and healthier. And finally I would also like to encourage everyone who reads this Annual Report to partner with us and be a champion for children at risk, your gift irrespective of size will go a long way!

Annual Report 2015

Christopher De Beyer Chair, Board of Management


Chief Executive’s Overview During the past year the demand for our services to children and their families rose steeply with an average of 40 new families requesting services each day. Our specialized social work structure continued to streamline child protection services but was weighed down by spiraling caseloads which was often more than twice or thrice the national norm of 60 cases per social worker, due to the high demand for services from the community. Our social service personnel worked tirelessly to meet the challenge of delivering professional services to clients as well as meet the demands of the Children’s Act 38 of 2005. However, extremely high caseloads (over 6000) translated to less time per case for our social Cape Town Child Welfare Society

workers and impacted negatively on case-management and supervision. The faltering global economy continued to impact on the donor Rand, locally, resulting in much needed donor support being limited to the non-profit sector, forcing many non-profit’s to downsize and weather the storm. Our social work departments showed leadership and dedication in the face of overwhelming caseloads, high demands from statutory child protection intervention and foster care monitoring and support. All other Departments joined hands with the social work departments during the past year to ensure our overall success. We experienced a very high turnover of social work staff due to our inability to match Government salaries for social workers, as well as our high social work caseloads which resulted in burn-out amongst many social workers.

The reports that follow reflect in greater the work of the organisation during the past financial year. The overall financial results show a large deficit, which understandably can be attributed to the prevailing economic climate, but which may have been even larger where it not for our committed donors and supporter, whom I would like to thank most sincerely for their generous support. Finally, I would like to thank our Board, Management, Staff and volunteers for their tireless efforts and teamwork during the past financial year.

Annual Report 2015


OVERVIEW OF DIRECT SERVICES Child Protection Services must be one of the most stressful and challenging fields of social work. On a daily basis the First Line Managers and Social Workers must make decisions in respect of the future of children. This is never an easy task as it is the life of a human being that is affected by the services, decisions and recommendations that are made. It is of the utmost importance to have the strength and conviction to be able to make sometimes difficult decisions to ensure the care and protection of children at risk. Eaach and every First Line Manager and Social Worker therefore deserve a BIG THANK YOU for their tremendous commitment and their willingness to give their all to ensure the wellbeing of a child.

Cape Town Child Welfare Society

The limited resources, financial constraints and high caseloads remained a challenge during the period. This unfortunately lead to some families not receiving services as quickly as we would have liked as cases have to be prioritized according to the risk of the situation to the children concerned. Intake Team: The Intake Team is responsible in the 1st place to ensure that the families referred to the organisation receives the correct services and/or is referred to the correct resources. It is therefore very important that the team knows the resources in the areas as well as the services rendered by the organisation. They are In the 2nd place responsible to determine if a child is in need of care and protection and if the child is at immediate risk and therefore needs to be safeguarded. It is a fast paced service with continuous pressure. In addition to the Risk assessments that need to be conducted the team has the additional pressure created through hospital referrals with a turnaround time of 3 days for investigation and ministerial inquiries with a turnaround

7


time of between 3 and 7 days. This lead to cases with medium and low risk to children not getting attention within the time frame it should and therefore a “backlog” gets created in the Intake Team. Investigations Team The Investigations Team is responsible for the statutory intervention in respect of children in need of care and protection. They receive referrals either from the Intake or Intervention Team after the child concerned was placed in temporary safe care or directly from the Children’s Court in the form of an Order to Investigate. Orders to investigate are issued by the court after allegations of child maltreatment was reported directly to the Children’s Court. On average the workers have 25 active children’s court inquiries at any given time. They attend between 3 and 5 court hearings per week and at the same time have to do investigations for their cases, apply for birth certificates, trace parents, etc. This put an enormous amount of pressure on the workers and at times lead to court hearings having to be postponed as

8

they just did not have the time to finalise their investigations. Intervention Team: The Intervention team is responsible for the monitoring and support services to families in respect of children not removed or children returned to the care of parents under conditions as well as mediation services in respect of parenting plans and contact & care. The Children’s Court issue orders to either investigate parties’ circumstances or to mediate between parties in order for the court to make a decision in respect of a parenting plan or a contact & care order. It is evident over the last few years that services around parenting plans and contact & care orders are very demanding in respect of time and resources as well as very stressful for workers as they also need to deal with the history of conflict between the parties. This service therefore lead to the workers not being able to give as much attention to the monitoring and support cases.

Annual Report 2015


The teams – First Line Managers, Social Workers, Social Auxilliary Workers and Community Development Workers – have to be commended for their commitment despite the challenges as indicated above. Their team work and co-operation is evident in the three times which help them to deal with the pressures and stressors.

Ina Vermeulen General Manager The year under review has yet again not been an easy one given the challenges as highlighted within the previous annual report remaining unchanged ie high staff turnover; ever increasing caseloads and limited resources. Despite these chronic challenges the following has been achieved by the teams under discussion largely due to the dedicated efforts of the First Line Managers and their team members. Cape Town Child Welfare Society

Foster Care Unit As a result of the growing increase in the number of foster care cases nationally and certain High Court judgements, the status of foster care has been placed under review by the Minister of Social Development. This close scrutiny has placed the First Line Manager and her team under extreme pressure in terms of them ensuring that all foster care cases received the required services and that all orders are reviewed timeously. This team therefore through the dedication and commitment of the first Line Manager and entire staff complement managed to obtain 555 orders for the period under review despite challenges experienced with regards to limited resources. Adoption Several staff changes as well as a reduction as noted in the number of babies being referred to our organisation for adoption interfered with the team’s ability to reach its target. However it should be noted that a decrease has been noted nationally in the number of adoptions being expedited due to an increase in bureaucratic

9


expectations; court required processes and documentation ( ie police clearances and form 30 checks etc )which all contribute to adoptions taking much longer to process than they have in the past. However on the flipside the number of persons interested in adopting has increased significantly, a trend which has been observed by other adoption agencies as well. This trend has also had an impact on the inter country adoption program where there are very few children who meet the criteria for inter country adoption and a lot more adoptive parents who are willing to adopt nationally.

complement in February 2015. This in addition to resource challenges experienced by this team affected continuity in service delivery and the progress of the team. However due to the tenacity and perseverance displayed by both the First Line Manager and team members, they managed to reach most of their targets as well as make good progress in addressing their foster grant application backlog whilst also maintaining their status of not having a foster grant review backlog.

Khayelitsha Unit The First Line Manager of this team is responsible for managing a community based specialised team which renders the full spectrum of specialised child protection services within the Khayelitsha Site C area. This team suffered a setback in November/December 2014 when due to the retrenchment and resignation of social workers in close succession of each other the First Line Manager of this team had to retrain an entire new staff

Contact & Care

The Contact and care cases remain the cases that demand the most social work attention and time although it is only 14.5% of the total Intervention caseload. The cases are time consuming and extremely challenging as mediation is difficult due to conflict amongst the parties and non-attendance of appointments although the application was made by them at court. Several mediation sessions and counseling has to be attempted before agreements can be reached. The cases need further attention after the order has been made at The Children’s Court as the organisation is then also responsible for monitoring of the care and contact of the children concerned.

Court Monitoring & Support

Graph 8 indicates that 38.3% of the families benefitting from Family preservation and monitoring services are due to neglect. It is therefore evident that neglect is still the biggest concern due to unemployment, poverty, parenting inadequacy and substance abuse.

The social workers with the assistance of social auxiliary workers and community development workers render services to 1814 children who have been placed in alternative care by The Children’s Court. See Graph 9 for a breakdown according to areas. The majority of the social workers’ time and resources are dedicated to the statutory requirements in respect of children in alternative care. This varies from Section 159 extension of orders every two years to Section 171 transfers, Section 175 discharge, Section 176 extensions after a child already reached the age of 18 and Section 186 extensions of orders. The activities in order to provide the reports to either The Children’s Court or The Department of Social Development include the following:  An assessment of the current circumstances and functioning of the foster parents  An assessment of the current circumstances and functioning of the foster child

The Department of Social Development’s adoption panel is attended where all adoptions are presented for recommendation. The panel checks that all legal requirements are met and processes have been followed. In addition the quarterly Adoption Coalition meetings are attended to ensure that best practice principles are adhered to. The Direct Service Manager has communicated with the South African as well as the Australian Central Authorities in respect of the progress made in respect of the inter country adoptions and the challenges experienced by the organisation. It is evident from the statistics that the small adoption team experienced many challenges, mainly due to constant staff turnover and vacancies during the period. It is however important to emphasise that the manager and workers ensured that norms and standards are kept to and that prospective adoptive parents receive babies through networking with other organisations and private social workers.

FINANCIAL REVIEW The annual financial statements for the yearending 31 March 2015 have been prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards for Small- and Medium-size Entities (SMEs) and will be available at the Annual General Meeting or on request from the Society. Revenue from operations: The total revenue from operations was R13 721 615. The main sources of income were from the following categories:  Government subsidy  Gross current collections from the public  Community Chest of the Western Cape  Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund

Membership fees Finance income Other income

Expenses The total expenses for the year was R17 288 645. The expenditure categories are listed below:  Staff expenditure  Transport and Office  Land & Buildings  Domestic expenditure  Professional & Special Services  Supplementary assistance  Other expenses General Overview Because of the stubborn economic climate, the raising of funds has become problematic. Our share in the market place shrunk and caused the income to plummet. With the fluctuation of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), the expenditure of the organisation outstripped the income. To this end some essential services had to be forfeited

Annual Report 2015


such as our security services. This reduction has unfortunately contributed to an increase in burglaries at our Bancedeni offices in Khayelitsha. In our endeavours to bolster the income against the Society's operating expenses, the investments have been drawn down to an absolute minimum. Some Lessees have also defaulted on their lease agreements and large sums of outstanding rentals had to be written off as bad debts. Accounts The Finance Department produces monthly accounts for the Organisation which has six core departments. Sage ERP Accpac has once again undergone a name change to SAGE. The modules used are Peresoft Cashbook, General Ledger, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable. The Sage Accounting System facilitates drill-down methodologies which reach right to the core of the individual entries in the ledgers. It is a user-friendly system which interfaces with the Softline VIP Payroll system. Therefore comparative year-on-year financial figures can be produced and has a storage facility to

Cape Town Child Welfare Society

keep data up to five years, which is also a requirement by law. It runs on a Dell server which is shared by the professional and other support staff. Mirror images are run on a separate drive and all the data on the server is backed-up daily on a tape and stored in a safe. Future plans include storing data in the cloud via the use of online storage facilities. Although the support staff in the Finance Department has been reduced to two, they nevertheless performed brilliantly. We salute and commend them for their loyalty, effort and commitment.
