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, Parkinson’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:
