Lawley, in the extreme south-west of Joburg is one of the City’s poorest areas

Overview


Information on the City’s expanded social package

The City's basket of benefits for needy residents.

THIS directorate manages the City’s programmes targeting poverty – in particular, the expanded social package – and also provides support to various non-government organisations that work closely with the City in providing social assistance.

The expanded social package is a single-window approach to social assistance delivery. Over the next year it will become the universal platform for programmes targeting poverty, delivered across the City’s departments and municipally-owned entities.

This single window approach will also see the introduction of the pro-active priority referral of beneficiaries to the job pathways programme. Job pathways is an employment facilitation service designed to link jobless assistance recipients to self-sustaining economic activities.
In addition, the directorate also carries out research on the impact of the City’s programmes, and develops new interventions to help individuals and households in Johannesburg to handle better, and ultimately escape, deprivation.

The social assistance directorate manages this system, as well as providing support to NGOs city-wide. These NGOs work in partnership with the City in social assistance delivery.

Vision
Shared with its sister directorate, human development, the directorate’s social assistance vision is the emergence of a city in which community development and personal growth and social mobility are enhanced, so that the challenges of poverty and vulnerability, inequality and social exclusion are fundamentally addressed by effectively, efficiently and accessibly connecting the poorest citizens with the full range of help available to them.
