Community programs

As all our members rely entirely on either a minimal government grant or disability grant, the monthly membership fee is low. The Department of Social Development grants subsidies for registered service centres offering approved services and funding proposals are continually made to charitable trusts, large companies and kind individuals.

  • Garden Village in Garden Village, Somerset West
  • Vonke Seniors Rendezvous at Vonke Park, Somerset West

Rest assured that, whatever your skill or talent, every contribution counts. The three minutes it takes to complete an application form could be the most celebrated decision you've ever made.
