Our Services

Woodside SCC is an NGO situated in Rondebosch East, Cape Town, South Africa. Established in 1976 and after more than 35 years of phenomenal service Woodside Special Care Centre is still the leader in providing excellent care to intellectually disabled children and young adults as well as their families.

Many of our children know only Woodside as their home and the staff as their families. 19 of our children have been abandoned and orphaned and the courts, as a result of abuse or neglect (against the child), have placed others here. It is for this reason we try and give them a life that is a close to normal as they can have.

The service levels at Woodside SCC are top notch and comprises of in house therapeutic activities such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, self-help skills, 24 hour professional nursing as well respite care to parents with children who are intellectually and physically disabled.
