▪ provide for additional payments linked to social grants;
▪ provide for payment of benefits to a child-headed household; to provide for social relief of distress in the event of a disaster;
▪ repeal the internal reconsideration process;
▪ provide for an Independent Tribunal to consider appeals against decisions of the Agency;
▪ provide for the establishment of the Inspectorate as a government component;
see summary.

Important to note; This is a legally protected public policy-shaping process mandated in the SA Constitution. By using DearSA’s platform you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (so government cannot dispute participation facts or figures) which forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise. It is not a petition. Your input is immediately sent to government and must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all input would be grouped as a single submission.
