PURPOSE OF ICPS:
              The Integrated Child Protection Scheme is expected to significantly contribute to the realization of Government/State responsibility for creating a system that will efficiently and effectively protect children. It is based on cardinal principles of “protection of child rights” and “best interest of the child”.
OBJECTIVES OF ICPS:

These will be achieved by:

TARGET GROUPS:

IMPLEMENTING AGENCIES:

 

 

 

 

Government – Civil Society Partnership
In order to reach out to all children, in particular to those in difficult circumstances, the Ministry of Women and Child Development proposes to combine its existing child protection schemes under one centrally sponsored scheme titled ICPS. ICPS will function as a Government- Civil Society Partnership scheme under the overarching direction and responsibility of the Central and State Governments. ICPS will work closely with all stakeholders including government departments, the voluntary sector, community groups, academia, and most importantly, families and children to create protective environment for children in the country.
The Government of India (GOI) will have the primary responsibility for the development and funding of the scheme as well as ensuring flexibility by cutting down rigid structures and norms. The GOI will also create an integrated, live, wed-based database on children including child tracking systems and a Management Information System. It will be the responsibility of the State Governments/UT Administrations to ensure effective implementation of the scheme by quick devolution and utilization of the funds. 
CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANIZATION & INDIVIDUALS
 It includes Voluntary Sector, Research and Training Institutions, Media and Advocacy groups, Community groups, local leaders, Volunteers, youth groups, families and children. To provide protective and conducive environment for children, to act as watchdog and monitor child protection services by inter-alia participating in the village and block level child protection committees.

The statutory mechanisms, as per the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 and Amendment Act, 2006, are as follows:

Depending on the size of the district, population, and number of children, one or more of these can be established in a district.

Child Welfare Committee

            Child Welfare Committee (CWC) are to be set up in every district as per the provisions of the JJ Amendment Act, 2006, as the competent authority to deal with children who are in need of care and protection, and provide for their proper care, protection, treatment, development and rehabilitation.
Juvenile Justice Board

               Juvenile Justice Boards are to be set up by the State Government in every district as per provisions of the JJ Amendment Act, 2006, as the competent authority to deal with matters relating to children in conflict with law.

 

 

 

 

 

State Juvenile Police Unit

                 The Police have a crucial role to play in the JJ System as they form the first point of contact with the child. Special Juvenile Police Units (SJPUs) are to be set up to handle matters concerned with children in conflict with law and children in need of care and protection.
The SJPU shall consist of a Juvenile or Child Welfare Officer of the rank of Police Inspector and two paid Social Workers having experience in working with children of which one shall be a woman. Every police station shall designate one officer as the ‘Juvenile’ or ‘Child Welfare Officer’ who has the aptitude, appropriate training and orientation to deal appropriately with children.

The member of the SJPU who is a Social Worker can be called by the ‘Juvenile’ or ‘Child Welfare Officer’ of the police station as soon as a child in need of care and protection or a child in conflict with law is produced before them.
The primary role of the Social Worker is to provide emotional support by making the child feel comfortable, create a child-friendly environment and collect the child’s background and history without making him/her feel intimidated. The Social Worker is expected to network or coordinate with NGOs working in the field of Child Protection so that the child can be temporarily placed in the institution before being produced the competent authority, or until restoration to the family.

8.         The Nagaland State Social Welfare Board (NSSWB)

The Nagaland State Social Welfare Board was set up in the year 1958 under Naga Hills Tuensang District with the constitution of the Social Welfare Advisory Board as it was known in those days. Mrs. Luthra, wife of the Commissioner Nagaland was the first Chairperson.
Early records note that it started with the launching of 3 welfare extension projects – two centres in Kohima District and one in Mokokchung District.
During the initial years, the Board faced acute shortage of staff and even Board members worked like staff and undertook administrative works. In those days, inspectors had to come from Assam to inspect the welfare Extension Project Centres. Officials from the Department of Social Welfare also made visits. Initially no Voluntary Organisations applied for the same. They also had no mode of transport and visits to villages were difficult.
The Board set up Maternity centres and Balwadi centres. While the dhais of the maternity centres undertook ante-natal care and post natal care, the Balwadi centres also distributed milk and biscuits as supplementary nutrition to the children. They also conducted pre-schools classes for children. The craft instructors trained women and young girls in cutting & tailoring, knitting and weaving.
Around 1972, the Catholic Mission also provided one lady doctor and two nurses for the Maternity Centre at Kohima. It was around this time that the Regional Director of UNICEF, Mr. Gordon Carter visited the centre at Kohima with his wife.
The Board over the years started giving grant-in-aid to the Voluntary Organisations for support of women, children and the physically handicapped. Holiday camps were organized for children and vocational trainings were also started. The holiday camps were for poor children of tribal areas who had no opportunities to avail holiday and recreational facilities. Such trips also inculcated a spirit of group living, self reliance, leadership qualities and also provide them with natural surroundings.
The socio-economic programme provided part time or full time jobs to economically backward, the physically handicapped destitute women including women in the early eighties while the Condensed Course of Education also started. During 1982-83, the Condensed Course of Education was conducted by two institutions.
The staff at the Border Area Welfare Projects in Mon, Tuensang, Wokha faced many problems. The state transport system was probably absent or very poor. The staff in these interior areas had to travel many hours through mountain roads and steep ravines to reach these project villages.
Many programmes could not be started in many districts of the state as the concept of voluntarism is poor and they were amateur voluntary organizations in these places. The Board started the process of developing organizations in these areas and fine tuning those already existing.
The Central Social Welfare Board gradually increased these programmes and started the process of decentralizing many of its programmes.
The Board had a monthly called the “Welfare News” to publicise the activities of the Social Welfare Department.
The year 1983 was the Silver Jubilee year. It was during the tenure of Mrs. Lhusi Haralu as the Chairperson. As part of the Silver Jubilee programmes, a Social Worker's Conference was organized on the 25 th November 1983 . the difficulties of the State Board can be understood as even in its 25 th year, the Board had only 8 administrative and support staff with the Secretary as the only high ranking and the rest in the support staff.
The involvement of the District administration was another effective method for the State Board to see it that the programmes are properly implemented. The District Commissioners of the district of Mon, Tuensang and Wokha extended support to the programmes of the Board.
A voluntary Action Bureau was established at the State Board's office to look into cases of atrocities on women and children. The State Board also sponsored patients suffering from physical disabilities along with escorts were sent to the National Institute of Orthopaedically Handicapped Calcutta and provided artificial limbs, wheel chairs, hearing aids etc.
The socio-economic programmes dealt with the development and expansion of common trades especially the agro-based trades such as piggery, diary, weaving & knitting, tailoring, production unit, goatery, bakery and handloom. These programmes like the socio-economic programmes was handed over to voluntary organizations. Awareness Generation Camps for rural and poor women were also started for NGOs to train and advise rural women on their rights, development and education.
The Family Counselling Centre and Creche centres proved a boon for many a women and family who were bessoted with domestic problems.
The Border Area Project attached to the State Board was officially handed to the Directorate of Women Development, Government of Nagaland w.e.f. 1.4.2005 as per the directives of the Ministry of Women & Child Development, Government of India.
The Board had been without own office for a very long time. However, with the support of the State Government the State Board has come up with its own building.
