Social Development

Problems associated with homeless or displaced people are dealt with in a holistic way.

Our social development programme offers information, referral, and support and case management to a large number of people.

With Khulisa Streetscapes as our development advisory partner since mid 2019, we’ve expanded our services to this community.

In addition to individualised case management, we offer a work-based rehabilitation diversion programme to those on the streets of Observatory – offering a combination of counselling, group sessions and street side support to a team who, in return, complete work assignments inside of the OBSID urban management programme.

We’ve also partnered with the Straatwerk Ophelp Projekte team – offering training in graffiti removal as well as earning opportunities to vulnerable (often homeless) individuals.

In partnership with Afrikaburn, we’ve installed 2 toilet units in the public spaces, for use by anyone who needs them.

We continue to refer individuals in need to medical facilities (or accompany them where this is needed) and counselling services at day hospitals and partner organisations.
