Rehabilitation of Children

Last updated on Apr 8, 2022

The main aim of rehabilitation is to make sure that a child can be put back under the care of their parent or guardian.

If this is not possible, authorities have to make sure the child is put under the care of a child-care institution that is recognised under the Juvenile Justice Act. These institutions have many services to help to rehabilitate children.

The responsibility to care for children doesn’t end when they reach the age of 18 and leave their institution. Children leaving an institution can be given financial support to help them integrate back into society.
