Government-NGO partnership in Providing Care and Protection

The Social Justice Department runs and oversees a range of welfare institutions to care for the children/ senior citizens, disabled persons, mentally ill persons, mentally challenged individuals, women and girls who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Inmates in these institutions often have multiple vulnerabilities. The governmental system, despite its inherent limitations had been rendering commendable services in this area. Government- managed care homes are not sufficient to meet the increasing demand for welfare institutions. In this context, Government introduced a policy framework for Government –NGO partnership.


The NGO framework aims at seamless integration and synergistic partnership between Government and Civil Society in facilitating services in care and protection institutions. International conventions and legislations envisage public- private partnership in the activities and in the management of institutions. NGOs will be selected for accreditation by Government based on past history and track record, audited accounts statement, expertise in the area etc.
