Abstract

The adoption of the White Paper for Social Welfare (1997) earmarked the commitment of the social welfare sector to impact on social development goals in South Africa. As policy frameworks the Integrated Social Service Delivery Model and the Policy on Financial Awards to Service Providers reveal great strengths to this effect. However, critical challenges remain to take the social welfare sector forward in delivering on its social development agenda. To fast-track service delivery requires the social welfare sector to redefine its developmental context and focus, guided by clear terminology and policy directions for implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
