Commissioner's Message

With the intention of providing services to the people of the Central Province, the Department of Social Welfare and the Department of Probation and child care services were established under the 13th amendment to the Sri Lankan constitution. On 15th of February 2012, these two departments were combined together in order to form the existing Department of Social Welfare, Probation and Child Care Services of the Central Province.

A staff of 168 people is currently employed under this department to carry out the duties up to date. My sole intention is to provide a people friendly public service to the deprived people of the society. I intend to extend our services to the community using Information Technology. Its beginning is marked with the creation of our web site and further work is being carried out using new information and communication technology strategy in par with "E-Sri Lanka" program.

I am grateful for the assistance and guidance shown by the political authority headed by the Governor of Central Province Hon. Surangani Ellawela and the Chief Minister of Central Province Hon. Sarath Ekenayeka, and the staff headed by the Chief Secretary of Central Province.
