About the organisation

 
The organisation was started in 1952 with the purpose of opening the school Vista Nova, when parents of children with cerebral palsy identified the need for assessment, treatment, and education of children with CP.

The school grew and so did the organisation as it developed a clinic in Red Cross as the need was identified for therapeutic intervention for children with cerebral palsy. Between 1972 and 1976 a social work service was started and by 1984 after an assessment on the needs by the Cerebral Palsy Clinic, De Heide Special Care Centre was established.

In 1990, Rosedon House was completed and the Palms work centre was started. Today, the WCCPA continues to operate the Cerebral Palsy Clinic at Red Cross, De Heide Special Care Centre, Rosedon House, The Village Work Centre (an amalgamation of the Rosedon and Palms work centre) and the Social Services programmes, providing for both adults and children who have cerebral palsy.

You may remember Suzy from the days when she was found in our local shops. She spread awareness and raised funds for children with cerebral palsy. We no longer see her in the shopping areas, but she is very available online.

We all seem to be moving at a rapid pace these days, but thankfully much is just a click away! Please will you consider downloading the Donate Nation App today so you can donate to the work of The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association via SUZY (who is now digital!)
