    • Place Of Safety:The State Government shall set up at least one place of safety in a State

Observation Homes and Special Homes have a unique objective and purpose for the services provided for children in conflict with law, and hence the approach of each would be different.

  • The Women and Child Development (WCD) Dept. realizes that Child Protection is about protecting children from or against any perceived or real danger or risk to their life, their personhood and childhood. It is about reducing their vulnerability to any kind of harm and ensuring that no child falls out of the social safety net and that those who do, receive necessary care, protection and support so as to bring them back into the safety net. While protection is a right of every child, some children are more vulnerable than others and need special attention.
  • In addition to providing a safe environment for these children, it is imperative to ensure that all other children also remain protected. This is because Child protection is integrally linked to every other right of the child.
  • Taking this into consideration, the Department has established a network of more than 1100 residential care institutions for children that are alleged and found to be in conflict with law and children in need of care and protection by catering to their basic needs through proper care, protection, development, treatment, social re-integration, by adopting a child-friendly approach.
  • The CCIs institutionalize essential services and strengthen structures for emergency outreach, institutional care, family and community based care, counselling and support services at the national, regional, state and district levels.
