SKHOSANA, Rebecca; SCHENCK, Rinie  and  BOTHA, Petro. Factors enabling and hampering social welfare services rendered to street children in Pretoria: Perspectives of service providers. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2014, vol.50, n.2, pp.213-236. ISSN 2312-7198.

A qualitative study was conducted to develop an understanding of the social welfare services being rendered to street children in Pretoria and to ascertain what factors facilitate or hamper the rendering of these services. The research shows clearly that the funding required for ensuring the sustainability of the organisations is insufficient, and that the human resources are unstable. The article provides a critical analysis of some of the key social welfare service challenges that need to be addressed to ensure the effective and sustainable delivery of social welfare services.
