Special Education and Care Centre | Cape Mental Health Society
CMHS has three centres for children with mental and physical disabilities. Volunteer placements are offered in two of them.
Focus on individual abilities
The Special Care Centres aim to meet the children and youth at their respective levels of development and their individual abilities, to support them and teach them practical life skills. The overall goal is to increase acceptance of people with mental and physical disabilities and to create a broader awareness of the issue.
What you can expect
As a volunteer, you will take care of the children together with your colleagues. There are no limits to your creativity and many things are possible, from singing and painting together, to sensory activities with water or modelling clay, to relaxed reading aloud or going for a walk in the buggy. As volunteers in the CMH projects, we were invited to several official events or asked if we would like to help and were thus able to exchange ideas with other staff members, get a taste of the organisation and also gain experience outside of the project.
