Abstract:This article focuses on the paradigm shift that governs the new social welfare policies in South Africa as proclaimed in the South African White Paper on Social Welfare (1997), as well as the Financing Policy: Developmental Social Welfare Services (1999) document. These new policies changed the face of social welfare in South Africa. They emphasize the (cost) effective, outcome-based service delivery to the benefit of all South Africans, particularly the previously marginalized population. This requires social work to readdress its research focus and methodology in order to maintain its pivotal role in social welfare. Bibliogr., sum.
