Black Sash KZN Social Assistance and Private Pension Workshop with LRC
Despite all Black Sash Regional offices closing the doors to one-on-one advice giving as a strategy in 2012, clients still come to our offices looking for help. One of our referral partners is the Legal Resources Centre (LRC) who have limited capacity and expertise to deal with particularly with Social Assistance and Private Pension Issues.
In order to combat this challenge and ensure our beneficiaries receive the necessary support, the Black Sash KZN Regional Office facilitated a workshop with the staff of LRC on Social Assistance and Private Pensions.
It was a mutual learning and sharing space as LRC were able to bring their own case experiences to the workshop where we could have the joint opportunity to work through them and find resolutions. We also shared our contacts at Local SASSA Offices with LRC so that they could be able to provide quick and efficient support to beneficiaries.
We are confident that this intervention will ensure that our beneficiaries will receive the necessary support and access their right to Social Justice, thus making Human Rights Real.
