The current model of social welfare delivery is largely based on non-profit organisations (NPOs). These provide a range of services, including residential services for older persons, partial-care facilities for children, child protection facilities, child- and youth care centres, as well as early childhood development centres. In 2008 (the most recent year for which data was available), there were 6 210 early childhood development centres and 2 705 other social welfare facilities. Of the latter, 98% of the facilities were operated by NPOs, providing services to 72% of the sector’s clients.

National Treasury, with the support of national DSD and the DG Murray Trust, is undertaking a project to put in place an improved financing framework and policy for welfare services. This review forms part of this broader project.
The main purpose of the review is to examine the current processes for registering NPOs and social welfare institutions with a view to proposing improvements to the policy, oversight and management of these processes.
