Some social work services back in Wespoort Park

2015-07-14 06:00

A section of the renovated building which houses the department of social development in Mitchell’s Plain has been reopened.

The professional social welfare services provided by social workers from the department based at 45 Alpha Street, Wespoort Park opened its doors in June.

“The ground floor of the building has been operationalised to allow us to bring much needed social work services much closer to the community. The social work intake section deals with all new cases, referrals as well as scheduled appointments,” says Pumeza Magadla, social work manager.

“Most of the administration staff as well as social work teams will still be based at the regional office in Rosmead Avenue, Wynberg until all sections of the building can be completed.”

All registered and unregistered non-profit organisations providing services in the Mitchell’s Plain community, such as youth and faith-based organisations and arts and culture non-profit organisations, are being invited to register their organisations on the local database.

“The aim of this is to establish a database of organisations in order to facilitate stakeholder engagements, to build the capacity of new and emerging organisations and to identify the service delivery gaps in the area,” Magadla says.

All scheduled appointments and one-on-one meetings with team supervisors can be arranged at the regional office by calling 021 763 6204/07/44/01.

“Alternatively, clients can be referred directly to our intake office. We sincerely apologise for inconvenience experienced throughout this period and will continue to keep you updated on further developments,” says Magadla
