The name social welfare isn't social.
My child is 4yrs and I have lost my job, so gave her to my God mother to support me take care of her. Today the mums family have gone for her without me and the guardian concern, and social welfare is allowing the girls family custody to sleep in the same room with 7 people in a single room. And they will call to ask of ¢1 for koko for the child. Knowing my situation, the girls father has 7 children, and is not taking care of them, but the mother of the girl didn't take her to social welfare but I who try my possible best, is taken there. Today the child is at home not going to school cos the other parents cannot afford her fees. So is the law supposed to look at the future of the child of selfish interest of some people. No wonder we Ghanaians are suffering, cos the laws are upside down.
Those who go there first win cases der. Gh is corrupt. They use dat office to extort money from the poor but responsible Ghanaians. They tell u if u don’t pay they will send u to court. I need to talk to their boss. ********

They are very dirty and homeless and I am very much concerned about this so please help me out. If the social welfare can not do anything about it then what other institution can help. Thank you.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development is a Government statutory Agency under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP). The Department was first established in 1946 by Local Ordinance Order No. 66 as Department of Social Welfare and Housing and later as the Department of Social Welfare in 1950.

Against the back drop of decentralization and the operationalization of the Local Government Act (1993) (Act 462), Local Government Service Act 2003 and the LI 1961, all implementing functions and activities that are delivered to individuals and communities directly by the Department were ceded to the Local Government Service and to the districts in 2011.

However, certain National Strategic Services which are implementation in nature are still catered for at the Centre by the Department, i.e. the control and management of the National Social Welfare Training/ Specialized Institutes.
