A draft policy could ensure that South Africa’s provincial social development departments allocate 5% of their funds to violence prevention.

A new Department of Social Development policy will change the way it funds services provided by its non-profit partners. The policy is currently open for public comment. To ensure continued future state support for vital services to prevent and respond to violence, non-profits need to understand the implications and how to constructively engage with government.

The Violence Prevention Forum, in partnership with Cornerstone Economic Research, has developed five factsheets and a briefing document to help non-profits and other stakeholders understand the policy.

This seminar is jointly hosted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and Cornerstone Economic Research.

Moderator: Senzekile Bengu, Research Officer and Western Cape Violence Prevention Forum Coordinator, ISS


Christina Nomdo, Commissioner, Western Cape Commissioner for Children

Conrad Barberton, Senior Economist, Cornerstone Economic Research
