National Counseling & Training Center for Children

 

National Counseling & Training Center for Children affiliated to the Department of Probation and Child Care Services has been established with the objective of providing counseling services for girl children who are suffering from mental discomforts as a result of abuse and to also take necessary measures to re-integrate them to society. Children identified with counseling needs are referred to this institution by the Provincial Commissioners of Probation and by Child Rights Promotion Officers for a duration of six months.

Children are given treatments and personality development programmes as well as vocational trainings are conducted during this six month residential programme. Measures are taken to re-integrate the children after the completion of the intended treatments and the children who cannot be re-integrated due to legal issues are subjected to the supervision of the Probation Officers. 

Administration of this center is done by an Officer-in charge under the supervision of the Commissioner of the Department of Probation and Child Care. This institution receives the service of Counseling Officers as well as of Vocational Skill Development Officers and at certain times, the institution takes measures to find employment for them as well.
