Our Strategic Plan 2021-2023 is now in its final year, and we continue to address the following Strategic Priority Areas: Capability; Innovation; and, Growth. To date, We have already achieved many of the desired outcomes and strategic goals.Our Annual Report 2021-2022 is an important document which not only keeps our stakeholders informed of the activities and opportunities we deliver, it also builds confidence and strengthens our reputation as a long-standing provider of disability services. It is a showcase of all the great achievements that our staff and participants have made during the past year. This year’s Annual Report can be downloaded here: lnkd.in/ea2XW43KWe are pleased to announce this year’s winner of the Mercy Day Shining Lamp Award.

Today, we sadly mourn the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II; a cherished Sovereign and inspirational woman who, over 70 years, ruled longer than any other Monarch in British history. Queen Elizabeth II respectfully fulfilled her promise made on her twenty-first birthday, in a speech broadcast on the radio from Cape Town stating: “I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service”.Her Majesty grandly succeeded in her dedication serving not only her people, but charities across the world, covering a vast range of issues and providing opportunities for those in great need.May she rest in eternal peace. ...
