Quick News – June 2018

Join the People’s Commission of Inquiry to Child safety in the Western Cape

Our petition for a Commission of Inquiry into child safety in the Western Cape has gained momentum in the Western Cape Legislature. The petitions standing committee met with Trauma Centre and its peers in April and May 2018. The Department of Social Development was instructed to meet with civil society to negotiate a settlement. We met with WC DSD. It is clear that a government-led Commission of Inquiry is not going to happen. WC DSD is open to co-hosting public hearings with civil society. The Petitions committee will meet with us in three months’ time for a final resolution. We have indicated to WC DSD that we will continue with a People’s Commission of Inquiry in the Western Cape.
