Bramley Children’s Home is a residential care facility for traumatised, abused, and neglected children, removed from their unstable home circumstances by court order. The home was established in 1960 on premises bequested by the late Mr. Bramley in Groenkloof, Pretoria.
The home is registered to accommodate 54 children. The children’s home is being managed according to a cottage system and consists of three separate homes with childcare workers, who take full responsibility for their group of 12-17 children. The children’s home renders a holistic service to the children between the ages of 5-18 years. The children’s home takes care of their physical, intellectual, spiritual as well as their emotional needs. The children’s home also pays attention to family re-integration and permanent alternative care for some of the children.
The Bramley Children’s Home offers a haven to traumatised children, to give them the opportunity to develop into well-balanced, responsible citizens. The range of services currently focuses on children and families, who struggle with physical and emotional needs, or children who have been abused and neglected. Attention is also given to children and families that have been affected by HIV.
The children are being transported to 17 different schools and can take part in after school activities. The children are being screened and placed in schools according to their emotional- and intellectual capabilities.
