Plaatjies and Nicolaou-Manias consider the budgeting process for social welfare services. Creating jobs in social welfare and community based services received considerable attention in the Human Sciences Research Council employment scenarios. The paper then reviews the EPWP, its objectives and its role in the social services sector. It focuses on three elements: early childhood development, home- and community-based care, and community health workers. The social services pillar of the EPWP could address unemployment while delivering services to children and others in need of care. Plaatjies et al frame potential employment creation by skill level in these types of services.
