dc.description.abstractThis study explores public perceptions of the Child Support Grant (CSG). An exploratory-descriptive study was conducted with a sample of 140 social workers, social work students and social service volunteers, using qualitative and quantitative research methodologies. The study found gaps in participants' knowledge around poverty, gender inequality in South Africa and the CSG itself Residual notions of welfare dominated, as did prejudices against poor, unmarried and sexually active young women. These views were balanced with some recognition of the CSG's potential as a social development strategy. Further research and revisiting the content and thrust of curricula in welfare is recommended.en_US
