Disability Network

The Stellenbosch Disability Network (SDN) was established in October 2014 and is open to any organisation, members of the public and interested parties wishing to share information, raise awareness and ensure the inclusion of disability in local planning and service delivery in greater Stellenbosch.

The SDN exists to:
  • Share information and build a database on disability-related services & organisations (networking)

  • Identify and record challenges faced by the disability sector & people with disabilities (research)

  • Ensure the inclusion of disability in local planning & services (representation)

  • Avoid duplication of services & maximize the use of limited resources (capacity building)

  • Raise awareness and sensitise the public on disability-related themes (awareness raising)

  • Take responsibility for the betterment of people with disabilities in our community (shared responsibility)

Meeting frequency
The SDN meets quarterly and hosts a large annual awareness raising event in November called Walk with Disability.
