The Association was founded in 1969, in order to provide support services and care to the Cerebral Palsied community. The purpose of the Association is to cater for the needs of those living with Cerebral Palsy, and to create awareness in communities and society as a whole, about the disability and of the people who live with it. We strive to attain integration and normalcy for these individuals.
The Association supports various projects that cater for people living with Cerebral Palsy. There are many different types of Cerebral Palsy, and each project serves a certain type. We have a school (Reunion) which accepts children living with Cerebral Palsy, and who are educable. We have a farm (Pevensey Place) in the Underberg where CP adults contribute to the running of the operations. We lastly have a Day Care Centre at the Head Office premises which caters for severely and profoundly disabled children and adults, all of varying degrees of severity.
Reunion is one of the few schools in the province where disabled children learn in their mother tongue, being Zulu. This makes the project unique from other centres and schools.
Our Day Care Centre C.W.A.C. has become a safe haven for our members who attend every week day, for stimulation, social and coping mechanisms, helping them become able to navigate life as a disabled person.
- All members are accepted; we do not discriminate based on race, culture, religion, class, gender or age.
- We mostly cater for the severely and profoundly disabled members of our community, where they are uneducable but require socialization and stimulation.
- People living with Cerebral Palsy require continuous and attentive care. We alleviate the burden this places on the families of the Cerebral Palsied by caring for and supporting our members at the Centre. Our Care Workers are excellent at this and have the best interests of their members at heart.
