SOCIAL AUDIT NETWORK

The Social Audit Network (SAN) is a network of implementing and support civil society organisations that work together to expand the use of substantive accountability tools, like social audits, as legitimate and effective forms of community based monitoring and participation in South Africa. The SAN works with communities to hold government and service providers to account and encourages community empowerment through skills transfer.

WHAT IS A SOCIAL AUDITĀ ?

A social audit is a community-led process of reviewing of crucial documents to determine whether the public expenditure and service delivery outcomes reported by the government really reflect the public money spent and the services received by the community. Members of the community collectively participate in a process of verifying government (or private company) documents by comparing them with the realities on the ground and the experiences of the community.
