SALGA Community Development and Social Cohesion National Working Group meets


Posted: 24 November 2017


The establishment of the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) Youth Commission, the R300 million Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) pilot project on sports facilities, as well as the facility count of sport and recreation facilities in municipalities were top of the agenda at the Community Development and Social Cohesion National Working Group this week.

Chaired by Councillor Jesta Sidell the working group had SALGA Community Development Executive Director, Mirriam Lehlokoa report back on the National Working Group Meeting Plan.

Ms. Lehlokoa further engaged on achievements and challenges of the roll-out of the Vulnerable Groups Programme, Sports and Recreation, Social Cohesion, and Leveraging Financial Resources.

SALGA Programme Manager for Sports and Recreation, Andile Nqini reflected on the R300 million MIG pilot project on sports facilities as well as the facility count of sport and recreation facilities in municipalities. Mr Nqini found that municipalities are often not aware of the Sport and Recreation requirements within their spaces hence sports and recreation facilities are not prioritised within municipalities.

SALGA's Working Groups this week got down to the nitty-gritty of local government affairs.  The Working Groups meetings come after SALGA successively convened its nationwide Provincial Members Assemblies (PMA's).
