How to Support Workshops for People with Disabilities

(Western Cape Government)
Summary
Businesses and individuals can support people with intellectual and physical disabilities by supporting the services and products produced by the workshops to which they belong.

Workshops for the disabled need your help

The provincial Department of Social Development, in partnership with NGOs, funds and endorses a number of workshops for people with disabilities.

The aim of these workshops is to provide rehabilitation services and work opportunities for people with disabilities who, due to the nature of their disabilities, may have trouble finding a job.

The business sector and society at large can support these workshops in a number of ways, among them by:

  • Entering into contracts with the workshops.
  • Helping the workshops build capacity by sharing knowledge and experience.
  • Sponsoring training programmes.
  • Facilitating access to further work opportunities and information.
  • Purchasing products made by the workshops.
