An investigation into the efficiency and effectiveness of the Child Support Grant distribution : a case study of Welbedacht East area in Chatsworth.
This study investigates the effectiveness of the Child Support Grant (CSG) distribution using the community of Welbedacht East (WE) in Chatsworth as a case study and explores the CSG‟s impact on grant recipients. A detailed literature review was undertaken in order to determine the intentions and efficiency of the South African government in implementing the CSG policy. The study further explores the extent to which the objectives of the CSG policy have been achieved and assesses the outcomes of this policy and its implementation. To achieve these objectives, information was solicited from informants who reside in the selected research area. The study‟s findings on the evaluated outcomes are broadly discussed, and an in-depth discussion is presented on the implications of CSG distribution, with a primary focus on whether or not the CSG is reaching its intended beneficiaries, specifically children in need. Finally, recommendations based on these findings are presented.
