SOCIAL SUPPORT

The Shonaquip Social Enterprise has created a Parent Network which is a digital (over WhatsApp) community where parents and caregivers of children with disabilities support one another by sharing their experiences & practical tips, across 9 South African provinces. We do this by ensuring that parents have access to information either through training sessions or by accessing information through networks of parents.

Parents who want to join our Network can contact Neliseka on 071 371 9103 or go here to find out a little more.

For specific psychosocial support please contact our social worker Nel Boshoff on 071 571 8900.

THE PARENT NETWORK

Parents of children with disabilities need access to high  quality information and support if they are to see their children and families thrive.

Networks of support play an important role in sharing quality information and support. Believing it best that  families ‘do things for themselves by themselves’, we encourage them to grow as change agents in the lives of not only their children, but other children in their communities.

RESOURCES

In order to build the capacity of parents in a sustainable way, we developed training materials that cover different areas of the parents’ life. Contact us if you are interested in partnering for parent training!
