Woodside Special Care Centre is a residential home caring for 80 profoundly intellectually and physically disabled residents and is situated in Rondebosch East, Cape Town, South Africa. Since its inception in 1976 Woodside has worked diligently towards building a home of safety and security for its residents, all of whom require specialised care and who are unable to remain within their family units.

If you have free time and would love to donate it towards a special cause, then spending time at our facility is a great way to do so. This is appreciated by both staff and residents. Alternatively you can “adopt-a-child” for R45 a month, join our tin collection drive or simply support the Myschool Initiative. Any contribution, whether it be time or financial, goes a long way.
The global pandemic has left us all frazzled and emotional and mentally drained. Finding something to hold onto from the ‘old’ and to help us renew our energy has been rather daunting. It was during this time, when we were all locked in at Woodside that the idea of developing the garden was borne. There was absolutely no place to run to other than the facility in which we were ‘captured’ by the pandemic. We were told to sit in the sun and get a dose of vitamin D to boost our immune system.
