Abstract

Historically, the annual South African social welfare budget has focused mainly on social security and hence included a very small percentage of funds for social welfare services.  For the 2003/04 book year 91,7% was budgeted for social care, including social security, as opposed to 4,4% for the financing of welfare services (De Vries, 2004).  in the 2004/05 budget provision is made for 91,6% for social care as compared to only 4,6% for welfare services, which is shared by the welfare sector in government and NGOs (De Vries, 2004).
