Social grants for children below the age of 15 years are available in South Africa. The Child Support Grant (CSG) is there to provide for the basic needs of South African children up to the age of 14 years whose parents or primary care-givers are not able to provide sufficient support because of unemployment or poverty.


A primary care-giver is any person who takes responsibility for the daily needs of a child and who may or may not be related to the child.The primary care-giver is responsible for ensuring that the child is fed, clothed, immunised, and given access to health-care.


It is important to know whether one is eligible to receive a grant if one is a care-giver.
