Horizon Child and Youth Care Centre

As the result of socio-economic circumstances in South Africa, the involvement of thousands of children in criminal activities is an unfortunate reality. Each province faces unique challenges in dealing with the problem of rehabilitating young offenders. Horizon Child and Youth Care Centre is a safe haven for such children in the Western Cape. This facility provides secure care facilities for those in conflict with the law and offering rehabilitative programmes run by dedicated staff.

Many children in the Western Cape are faced with a set of frightening obstacles on their paths to adulthood. Often due to factors such as poverty, gangsterism, or under the influence of adult collusion, children are arrested for allegedly committing crimes. Entry into the criminal justice system could have serious and irreversible consequences for these young South Africans. For this reason, the Child Justice Act prescribes that accused children should be held in a place of safety, and must not be dealt with via normal criminal procedures, but through a rights-based process that favours restorative justice and reintegration.
