Assistive Buddies

Assistive Buddies is a project launched to provide affordable assistive devices to people with disabilities.

The work centre has approximately 20 adults with varying disabilities manufacturing the low-cost devices in a protective environment.

These devices are suitable to assist people with various conditions or injuries including cerebral palsy, strokes, arthritis, muscular dystrophy and more.

The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association is extremely grateful to The Australian High Commission Direct Aid Program and The Rolf Stephan Nussbaum Foundation for sponsorship of The Assistive Buddies Project

The Assistive Buddies Project was launched in 2018 out of a need to provide affordable assistive devices to people with disabilities and people who lose functioning as a result of suffering a stroke, arthritis, Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsonโ€™s or generalised aging. Access to affordable assistive devices helps people with these conditions to increase their independence in daily tasks.

The Assistive Buddies include wheelchair related devices, bathroom and kitchen devices as well as adult and paediatric therapeutic resources.

If you or someone you know has a need for any of the devices please contact:

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!)
