Social Development Month 2022

Social Development Month 2022

1 to 31 October 2022

Social Development Month (SDM) is celebrated annually to mark our nation’s commitment to caring for the most vulnerable in society. 

October will also commemorate Older Persons Week. Older Persons Week is used to recognise the contributions of older persons and to address issues that specifically affect them. Active Aging Week on the other hand highlights the capabilities of older persons as fully participating members of society and encourages them to participate in simple exercises

The campaign, held in conjunction with the National Development Agency (NDA) and the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA), also aims to inform communities of the various social security programmes available to them and how these can be accessed.
