SASSA and the Department of Social Development (DSD) commissioned the study to identify excluded children and establish reasons for their exclusion.

The study’s overarching aims are: To analyse the suitability, adequacy and appropriateness of the design of various SASSA and other departmental programmes in order to address the barriers that prevent especially vulnerable groups of children from accessing the CSG.  To assess the effectiveness of these programmes. To lay the foundation for the development of stronger programmes and innovations to ensure that all CSG eligible children access their right to social security.
