Western Cape Department of Social Development has announced that it will
increase salaries for social workers working Non-Governmental Organisations to
Albert Fritz in a statement said the department will continue to capacitate and
develop the eight-hundred and seven social workers and eighty social work
supervisors currently working within the department, and the eight-hundred and
ninety–three workers which the department funds through NGO’s.
Fritz says this is so because we really believe to narrow the gap between the
salaries earned by social workers from the state and salaries earned by social
workers of Non-Governmental Organisations.
also see experienced social workers leaving the NGO’s to come to the state because
the salaries are higher. A level of 40% increase for social workers I think
will try and close that gap, Fritz added.
