Child Witness Project Toolkit
In implementing its Child Witness Project in the Sexual Offences Courts, RAPCAN has been mindful of the need to increase access to these services for children all over the country. In response to this objective, the Child Witness Toolkit was developed. This is a comprehensive set of documents that will enable RAPCAN's model for child witness services to be established elsewhere.
The RAPCAN Child Witness Project Model
RAPCAN developed the child witness support model for children, their families and other witnesses in five Sexual Offences Courts in and around Cape Town. This service is currently located in the Sexual Offences Courts in Atlantis, Cape Town, Khayelitsha, Paarl and Wynberg. Since April 2013 this model is being run by Lifeline/Childline with support of the provincial Department of Social Development while RAPCAN performs a training and mentoring role to Lifeline/Childline.
