This research investigates the impact of the Child Support and Foster Child grants in South Africa on children's care. It examines the effect of these grants on the quality of children's care and on decisions about who will provide care to children. It also explores implementation issues regarding both grants and proposes options for making support more effective and efficient.
This research is part of a wider study on the linkages between social protection and children's care in Sub-Saharan Africa, and further research has been completed in Ghana and Rwanda. The research in South Africa was led by the Children in Distress Network (CINDI) in collaboration with Family for Every Child and the Centre for Social Protection (CSP) at the Institute for Development Studies (IDS) in the United Kingdom (UK).
