Follow Up on 29 September 2015

SASSA has improved working relationships with Qunu AO and consult the CP on improving service delivery: upgrading the computer system, placing an experienced staff member at the front desk.

Long queues are still a problem & staff still does not wear name tags. The manager promised to address this.

Qunu AO conducted public education in 9 villages on social grants and Regulation 11.

Qunu AO assisted 105 community members from 14 villages to access Social Relief of Distress & apply for social grants using Regulation 11 where necessary!
