How do Children with Disabilities experience Poverty, Disability and Service Delivery

A Report on Participatory Workshops

by Glynis Clacherty, Kgethi Matshai

This report is based on information gathered in participatory workshops held with children who have disabilities around South Africa: in KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape, Limpopo, the Western Cape, and the North West. Emerging themes of the workshops were children’s experiences of poverty, disability, abuse, social security, health care, service provision, participation, discrimination and access to socio-economic rights. The study provides information on government programmes, budget allocations and spending on children with disabilities.

The report was produced by the Children’s Budget Unit of IDASA’s Budget Information Service, South Africa, in partnership with the South African Federal Council on Disability.
