General Information

The National Children's Registry (formerly the Office of the Children's Registry) was merged with the Child Development Agency on November 1, 2017 to form the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA).

The National Children's Registry is a central system to receive, record, assess and refer for investigation reports of known or suspected child abuse cases or other threats to children. The first of its kind in the Caribbean, the organisation acts as a catalyst for establishing other Children's Registries in the region.

The NCR also manages an effective national alert and response system for the fast and safe return of missing or abducted children. We place great emphasis on promoting measures to prevent, reduce and or eliminate the phenomena of child abuse and missing children. We are also committed to utilising innovative, strategic and impactful approaches to stimulate awareness and action about protecting children's rights.

The organisation's Child Participation Programmes create an avenue for children to inject their views and talents in a robust public education campaign to raise awareness about the NCR, the Ananda Alert System and reporting procedures.

The NCR encourages all Jamaican citizens to join hands, hearts and minds to create safe and nurturing environments for our nation's children. Today, your actions can make a difference in a child's life, so be the change, speak out, and protect our children.

Reports to the Registry are held in the strictest of confidence, and reporters do not have to give their names. The NCR's main role is to receive reports of children who have been, are being or are likely to be abandoned, neglected, physically or sexually ill-treated, or are otherwise in need of care and protection.

Do you suspect any instances of child neglect or abuse? Call us today.
