SASCU provides psychosocial support to child survivors of abuse from all parts of Uganda. SASCU targets particularly children withdrawn from the streets, children in vulnerable situations especially in slum areas who have been or at the risk of abuse.
These children receive counseling from SASCU from a pool of case workers and from community based child protection structures that SASCU works with. We have been able to jointly work with Platform for Labour Action, Kawempe Division Probation Office and other Child Protection agencies to provide a range of child protection services.
Abused and neglected children are supported to access the necessary services and linked to the justice system. Children are linked to relevant medical and social service deliverers. SASCU follows up with reported cases to support children and also uses its referral network to help survivors access services delivered by other organizations.
