Description

How the Community Work Programme can reach its full potential as an instrument of community development in South Africa

The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR) has been involved in research on the CWP and its impact on violence and crime prevention since 2013.

One of the first observations from this research was that there is a lot of variation between different CWP sites. Some sites are much more dynamic than others. Sites that are functioning better are also the sites that are likely to make the biggest contribution to community development, and to violence and crime prevention.

In this policy brief we look at what distinguishes ‘better sites’ from other sites.
