The Department of Social Development has published the draft Social Services Practitioners Bill for comment.

Comments can be emailed to Professionalsupport@dsd.gov.za by no later than Wednesday, 27 May 2020

The Bill was developed to expand the regulation of social service practitioners by recognising that there are both professional and auxiliary levels within the social service occupations. This Bill once it is legislated, will repeal the current Social Service Professional Act, 1978 (Act 110 of 1978).
