Host a child
Back To Get Involved

Ethelbert is looking for host families who will assist by providing everyday life experiences for children who have been deprived of these due to being abandoned, abused or severely neglected. Host families can take a child out for a day, a sleep-over or for weekends and school holidays.

All host placements are carefully planned, and on-going support is given through regular meetings and telephonic contact to assist the host family in meeting the child's social and emotional needs.

Ideally, host families must be willing to become persons on whom the child can rely. Therefore, only those who are able to make this commitment should consider becoming involved in the host programme.

If you are interested in becoming a host to one or more of the children here at Ethelbert, please contact our Social Worker on 031 464 6555 or
