AbstractDIE BEHOEFTES VAN KINDERVERSORGERS IN PRIVAAT PLEKKE VAN TYDELIKE VERSORGING IN SUID-AFRIKAThis article focuses on the needs of child caregivers when a child in need of care and protection is placed in private places of temporary care. In order to act in the best interest of these children very high expectations and demands are placed on the child caregiver. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with child caregivers. Their greatest need was for training so that they could gain more knowledge and insight in dealing with these children. There was also a need to be part of the team approach. Support from all the relevant roleplayers, especially social workers, would contribute to successful placement of the child.
