Families, the child support grant, and child well-being. Connecting cash and care to scale up the impact of the CSG Families, the child support grant, and child well-being. Connecting cash and care to scale up the impact of the CSG

This document reports on a study that used a mixed methods design combining quantitative national statistical data (from the National Income Dynamics Survey (NIDS) Wave 1 of 2008) with qualitative insights gained from CSG families. The aim of the study is to contribute to our understanding of the interface between family contexts and child well-being outcomes; shed light on the perspectives of families themselves about various aspects of caregiving, family beliefs and their needs and challenges; and to provide recommendations for family and community based developmental welfare interventions to further scale up the already positive impacts of the CSG.
