The Village Work Centre is a protective work centre for adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities who are unable to be employed in the open labour market. The protective work centre is based on a vocational rehabilitation programme which emulates a work environment. The programme includes work activities and life skills training and workers are paid a small stipend to supplement their social security disability grants.

Workers in the programme are assessed by an occupational therapist to ensure the appropriate selection of work activities and life skills training they require. An individual development plan is devised for each worker and their progress in respect of their development plan is monitored on an ongoing basis.

Social work services are also provided for families of the workers to ensure interaction between their attendance in the programme and their home and community.

Work activities at the centre include the manufacture of assistive devices for people with disabilities, wooden artefacts and household equipment as well as contract packaging for local businesses.

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!)
