Road Safety Campaign

The QuadPara Association of South Africa’s annual road safety campaign kicked off this long weekend with wheelchair users being deployed to petrol stations all across the country. In the Western Cape, the QuadPara Association of the Western Cape deployed a team of wheelchair users to the Winelands Engen garage. The team will urge motorists and passengers to drive safely over the festive season. Motorists will sign a pledge form pledging to wear their seat belts while driving.

The catchphrase of the campaign is “Buckle up, we don’t want new members.” Each member of the public who signs the pledge sheet is given a licence disc to use in their vehicle and to show that they are committed to driving safely. The QAWC team will be deployed on various days over the festive season. This campaign is seen as an opportunity to give something back to the general public who offer their support to our members throughout the year. The campaign has proved to be very successful over the years and is popular with motorists and participants alike.

Domestic One-Day Cup Final

The Nashua Cape Cobras hosted the Chevrolet Warriers in the final of the domestic one-day cup at the beautiful Sahara Park Newlands. There was a great demand for tickets to attend amongst QAWC members with more people requesting tickets for the QAWC suite than QAWC actually had. The names of everybody who applied were put into a hat and a lucky draw took place to decide who would be given tickets. They were unfortunately a few unhappy members, those who were lucky enough to receive tickets were delighted.

There was a capacity crowd and the Cape Cobra players did not disappoint their fans, cruising to a convincing victory and winning the 1st domestic trophy of the season.the care of Lucy members who attended were very grateful to have the use of a suite as the strong wind that was present meant that the night got icy cold. Attention now moves to the national team again with the Proteas playing against Sri Lanka from January 3 onwards. Those wanting tickets should contact Esmé in the QAWC office on 14 December.

The Annual ACSA Feather Awards

This year’s annual ACSA Feather Awards took place at The Pavilion in Cape Town. QAWC were asked to represent QASA and to hand over certificates to the companies who are responsible for assisting passengers with special needs at Cape Town International Airport. The event was attended by Raven Benny, the chairperson of QASA and Esme Kleinschmidt, the QAWC secretary.

The Feather Awards recognise and reward service excellence at the Cape Town International Airport. Raven was very proud to hand over certificates to the service providers who insure that the needs of wheelchair users are met. The awards ceremony itself is a very prestigious event and saw members of the audience being entertained by some of Cape Town’s most talented performers. QAWC were delighted to be able to play a small role in the proceedings and had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Celebrating International Day Of Persons Living with Disabilities

This year’s celebration of International Day was hosted by the Western Cape Network on Disability at the beautiful Green Point Park. The group of people with disabilities gathered in the parking lot of the Virgin Active. From there the group marched to the amphi theatre in the middle of the gardens.

The group was addressed by various speakers, including the Mayor of Cape Town, Patricia De Lille and a representative from the Western Cape Department of Transport. There was also entertainment to keep everyone busy and interested. Despite a very strong wind blowing, the day was enjoyed by all who attended.

Working with the Department of Social Development

On November 29 the Paarl branch of the Department of Social Development hosted a My Confidence Workshop for people living with disabilities. The aim of the workshop which was held at the Drakenstein Correctional Facility was to showcase and highlight the talent and ability that people living with disabilities have. Anthony, the QAWC project manager, was asked to be the guest speaker on the day. Anthony shared his story with the audience and encouraged those people living with disabilities to make positive choices and to focus on the ability that they have rather than their disability.

The event was attended by people with disabilities from various organisations in the Drakenstein area. The audience were treated to singing and dancing performances by people with disabilities from the various organisations and it was very clear that there are a number of people living with disabilities who are extremely talented. The smiles on the faces of the people in the audience and those who were performing was a clear indication that everyone was having an enjoyable time. The event which was attended by approximately 130 people living with disabilities was a definite success and QAWC was delighted to be able to play a part.

Cricket at Sahara Park Newlands

The 1 st limited overs match of the domestic season took place when the Nashua Cape Cobras took on the Nashua Titans. As always the QAWC suite was open and we were delighted to welcome a number of first-time visitors to the suite. The suite is positioned right next to the suite of the former players and players which means that our members get to rub shoulders with players past and present as well as a few other dignitaries.

QASA Management Member Dinner

The majority of the QASA management committee met for dinner in Cape Town. QAWC was represented at this dinner by Richard Barron and Raven Benny. This dinner was an opportunity for management members to catch up with each other and enjoy each other’s company in an informal setting before the formalities of the following days AGM, management meeting and cocktail party. This dinner proved a huge success, with old friendships renewed and some new friendships made.

QASA members arrive in Cape Town

Members of QASA management arrived in Cape Town for the QASA AGM and management meeting which took place on 10 September 2011. QAWC resources were stretched to the limit transporting members from the airport to their hotels in the centre of Cape Town. In making the arrangements for accommodation for management members QAWC was delighted to find that a number of hotels in the city of Cape Town have rooms which are accessible to people with mobility impairments and we actually ended up with a surplus of rooms. It would seem that this is one of the positive legacies left from the 2010 World Cup.

Sep 02 2011

Casual Day Breakfast with Siyakaya Consulting

QAWC was invited to celebrate Casual Day with Siyakaya Consultants at a breakfast in Pinelands. All present enjoyed a thoroughly delicious breakfast as well as an opportunity to network with people from other disabled people’s organisations as well as representatives from the business sector.

The QAWC project manager was one of three guest speakers and spoke about the reality of living with a mobility impairment as well as the challenges faced by people with mobility impairments on a daily basis. The presentation was very well-received by the diverse audience and numerous questions were asked. It was clear that there was a strong will to learn more about the needs of people living with disabilities. There was also significant interest in the role that people with disabilities can still play in their communities and in the workplace. All in all it was a very enjoyable morning, with many meaningful contacts being made.

Eskom Cheque Handover

Representatives from Eskom, the WCRC Facility Board, QAWC as well as management of the WCRC gathered at the WCRC for the official handover of the cheque from Eskom. A cheque of R 49,000 was handed over to the organisers of the Eskom Mitchell’s Plain Wheelchair Race.

This year’s race which will take place on 5 November promises to be even bigger and better than the previous two editions of the race. Entertainment has been lined up for the day and in addition to the wheelchair races, there is also going to be a fun walk for people who just want to come along and show their support for people with mobility impairments.

Should you wish to enter the race, have a stand on the day or just require more information, please do not hesitate to contact Esmé in our office.

Users Meeting of Dial a Ride

The City of Cape Town have called for the users of the Dial a Ride service to attend a meeting in Woodstock on Saturday, 30 July 2011. The meeting which will be held at the Woodstock Town Hall starts at 9 AM and will give users of the service the opportunity to voice their concerns about the service offered.

The City of Cape Town are in the process of drawing up the tender document for the Dial a Ride service which needs to go out soon. The current tender will expire at the end of the year and new operators will be taking over. This meeting is an opportunity for users of the service to inform The City of the shortfalls of the service and to tell them what our expectations of the service are.

QAWC representatives will be attending the meeting and will communicate various concerns and observations to the City of Cape Town. If you have concerns or comments you would like to make but will not be able to attend the meeting, you can contact the QAWC office who will record your views and ensure that they are raised at the meeting.

This meeting is very significant and QAWC encourages members to attend and make the City of Cape Town aware of our needs and let them know that we are no longer going to sit back and accept a second rate service.

Workshop with Self-Help Centre Group

Members of The Self-Help Centre Group came to the QAWC office for a workshop aimed at giving them a better understanding of what it means to run a Self-Help Centre as well as the costs involved in running a Self-Help Centre. The workshop was facilitated by the QAWC project manager who is himself a resident of a Self-Help Centre and who has experience of running and starting a Self-Help Centre.

The process was extremely interesting as members of the group discussed their vision for their house and how they see it being run. It soon became clear that it requires hard work and dedication to run a Self-Help Centre and that living in the centre of this nature requires commitment from each and every resident.

By the time the workshop was over, The Self-Help Centre Group had made a number of decisions and had a good idea of where they want to be. Everyone who attended is now more aware of the reality of starting a Self-Help Centre as well as what is actually required to run a Self-Help Centre on the month to month basis.

The group identified the need for a constitution as a priority and will be meeting on 3 September 2011 to start to draw this document up.

Aug 06 – 10 2011

Cornell Interns

Unfortunately the timing of the arrival of these interns was not conducive to QAWC doing very much work with them. They were only in Cape Town for one working day so we made sure that we put them to work! They assisted the QAWC project manager to do an audit at the Masonic Home for Quadriplegics and Paraplegics. Their input and effort was really welcome and appreciated and they ensured that the process went smoothly.

The rest of the time that they were in Cape Town fell over a weekend and a public holiday which was unfortunate for QAWC, but did mean that Christopher & Kit were able to do some sightseeing. They were able to visit Robben Island, go up Table Mountain, explore the Waterfront, visit a wine & cheese farm, travel around the peninsula including a stop at Hout Bay and a drive over the world famous Chapmans Peak.

It was wonderful to meet these two young men and we were quite certain that they will make a success of their futures. QAWC wishes them both everything of the best for the future.

Aug 05 2011

Cornell Interns Arrive

Kit & Christopher, two interns from Cornell University in the USA arrived in Cape Town where they will be hosted by QAWC until Wednesday 10 August. Kit & Christopher have been in South Africa for approximately 5 weeks where they have travelled around visiting and given input on many of the projects which QASA have. Their journeys took them to Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Bloemfontein, Umtata and now finally to Cape Town.

In order to welcome them properly QAWC organised a small braai for them which was attended by some management members, representatives from each of our three houses and a few other selected people. They certainly seem to be wonderful young men and we look forward to getting to know them better.

QAWC Team Leaves Oudtshoorn

The QAWC team packed up and headed back for Cape Town. The team were absolutely exhausted after a very busy but rewarding three days. The schedule while we were in the area was very full but we were delighted to have been able to speak to so many people and also to introduce our services to many new wheelchair users.

The team was struck by the lack of basic accessibility throughout the area that we visited and in many ways it made us great for some of the services which we are fortunate to benefit from in Cape Town. There is no doubt that the smaller towns have a long way to go before they can truly claim to be “wheelchair friendly” and QAWC will continue to engage with the role players in order to ensure that improvements are made.

The team arrived back safely in Cape Town exhausted, but very proud of what they had achieved.

Calitzdorp Welcomes QAWC

The third and final day of the trip saw us visit Calitzdorp. We started day with a visit to Gamka Oos School where we were once again very warmly received. Despite it been a rather chilly morning the students stood and listened while we shared our stories with them. We then moved on to Excelsior School where the learners were very obviously excited to receive visitors from Cape Town.

Neither of the schools were very accessible and while we were able to get in and move around and we pointed out to the learners just how difficult it would be for a person with a mobility impairments to access their school. There is no doubt that our talk made the children more aware of the need for an accessible environment for people with disabilities.

The last stop on our trip to the Oudtshoorn area was to a meeting with the community and role players in Calitzdorp. We are once again humbled by the lack of services and accessibility faced by people living with disabilities in these areas. At the same time we were truly amazed by the wonderful spirit of the people as well as their never say die attitude. We introduced QAWC to those present and urged everyone to do what they can to ensure that people with disabilities are included in everyday life and given the opportunity to live their life to the full.

Microsoft Donates Computers

The establishment of QAWC’s Digital Village is gathering momentum. We have taken delivery of the eight computers which will be utilised in the Digital Village. These computers which were donated to us by Microsoft will be used by the learners as well as by the administrative staff. In addition to the donation of the computers, Microsoft have also pledged to donate all the software which the computers in the Digital Village will require. The software has a total value of just over $10,000!

While the opening of the Digital Village has been delayed by a few factors outside of our control, we are aiming to be up and running within the next few months.

Quasar Trust turns 30

Quasar Trust celebrates its 30th birthday today! One of three self help centres in the Western Cape Quasar was started by a group of quadriplegics who wanted to take back control of their lives and regain their independence. It took extreme hard work and perseverance but eventually the focus and determination of this group of pioneers was rewarded and they were able to see their dream become reality when they purchased their own house.

Situated in Parow, Quasar provides full-time accommodation and care to 7 quadriplegics and paraplegics. There have been numerous obstacles over the last 30 years and it is testament to their incredible work ethic and will to succeed that they are still living their dream. Some of the faces may have changed over the years, but the high standards and fierce determination to be as independent as possible remain.

All of us at QAWC are extremely proud to be associated with Quasar Trust and are full of admiration for all that Quasar Trust has achieved. QAWC congratulate you on this wonderful milestone and look forward to watching Quasar Trust go from strength to strength during the next 30 years!

QAWC AGM Notification

The annual general meeting of the QuadPara Association of the Western Cape will be taking place on Saturday, 23 July 2011. The meeting will be held at the Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre at 10:30 AM for 11 AM. During this meeting the QAWC chairperson will report back on the highlights and successes of the previous year. The QAWC committee members were elected to serve a two-year term at the 2010 AGM which means that there will therefore be no election taking place at this year’s meeting. Members are encouraged to ensure that their annual membership fees are up to date. QAWC AGMs are always well attended and are normally a good opportunity to network as well as meet up with old friends and make some new friends.

Refreshments will be served after the official business has been taken care of and we look forward to seeing as many of our members as possible on the day.

Konica Minolta Donate a Bizhub

QAWC were delighted to take delivery of their very own Bizhub which was donated by Konica Minolta. This awesome machine which can print, copy, scan and fax will not only save QAWC money, but will go a long way towards assisting QAWC to operate in a more effective and efficient way. The need for a machine of this nature has existed for a number of months and we are delighted to have taken delivery of this wonderful machine.

Esme, the QAWC secretary, received training and was shown how to fully utilise the various functions of the Bizhub. The machine is very user-friendly and it did not take long for Esme to learn the various functions. The Bizhub has many features and we look forward to making good use of it. Our sincere thanks to Konica Minolta for this extremely generous gesture, we really do appreciate it.

City of Cape Town Transport Meeting

Through QAWC’s representation on the transport committee of the Western Cape Network on Disability our project manager, Anthony Ghillino, was invited to attend a meeting to give input on the City of Cape Town’s plans for transport. This meeting was attended by all the major role players including representatives from the Provincial and City Administration.

The first part of the meeting focused on the future plans with regards to transport in the City of Cape Town as well as the entire Western Cape. The presenter was very open and honest and admitted to past mistakes. The IRT system is in its infancy and while the buses on the main routes are totally accessible the vehicles on the feeder routes are not. The frustration and disappointment of the disability sector was made clear with the authorities being told that people with disabilities would no longer stand idly by and accept excuses. The disability sector is tired of the various promises which have been made and we are prepared to take to the streets and “fight” if necessary. Many lessons had been learned during the implementation of the IRT on the West Coast road and we were given assurances that these will not happen again.

The various people representing the disability sector emphasised that people with disabilities must be seen first and foremost as commuters and not as a separate group. Emphasis was placed on the need for a universally accessible transport system which will cater to the needs of everyone, disabled or otherwise. The presenter reiterated their commitment to ensuring that each and every future transport system would cater to the needs of people living with disabilities.

The second part of the meeting was related to the existing Dial a Ride service which is currently used to transport people with disabilities within the City of Cape Town. Over the last few months the city have began monitoring the operator more closely which has resulted in the operator being very heavily fined. While there is still a need for improvement, it has been noted that the service has improved. The schedules have been re looked at and reworked and they are now able to accommodate an extra 20 people per day which is quite a large improvement when one considers that the existing Dial a Ride service can only transport 250 people per day.

Various problems with the existing service were pointed out to Mr Danny Jafta who is the person at the City of Cape Town who manages the service. The meeting was also shown statistics which indicate what most people are using the service for, with the majority of users going to and from work. The service is heavily subsidised and only caters to a very small percentage of people with disabilities who would like to make use of the service.

The tender of the existing operator of the service expires at the end of this year and the search for a new operator will start shortly. There will be changes to the existing tender, but these will not be made without the input and blessing of the disability sector. The City of Cape Town have requested to meet on a monthly basis with representatives from the Western Cape Network on Disability and DPSA to ensure that this process continues and that the needs of people with disabilities are catered for.

Interviews for vacancies at QAWC

The process of finding staff for the QAWC Digital Village has entered the final stage. Some time ago QAWC advertised the 2 vacant posts, one for the position of administrator and the other for the position of trainer. QAWC received numerous applications for both posts and after going through each applicant’s CV established a short list.

Interviews were set up for the end of May but had to be postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Interviews were held on Monday, 13 June at the QAWC office with the individuals who had made the shortlist. The calibre of the applicants was very high and the decision is going to be a very difficult one. The successful applicants will be notified shortly and will then be announced on this website.

We are very excited to be taking this next step towards getting the QAWC Digital Village up and running. A date for the opening of the Digital Village has not yet been set, but watch this space for an announcement.

Firefighting & Evacuation Training

QAWC recently received funding from the National Lottery Trust Fund to conduct training with the staff of our 3 self-help centres. Over the last few years there have been several cases of fires breaking out at residential facilities which have all had catastrophic results. With this in mind QAWC enlisted a service provider with experience and expertise in holding firefighting and evacuation training workshops.

As the members of staff work shifts it was decided to have workshops on two days to ensure that all staff members had the opportunity to attend. Training on 2 June took place at the Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre and at Quasar on 3 June.

The training which was conducted by a qualified Fireman was extremely informative and focused on equipping staff members with the skills necessary to identify potential fire hazards, prevent fires, identify the various classes/types of fires, how to extinguish a fire at how to evacuate the building in the case of an emergency.

The training facilitators were excellent at sharing information and got their points across. Staff members are made aware of the seriousness of the course as the information they were being given and the skills they learnt could one day save a life. Each member of staff had to write a test after the theoretical part of the training and they were then taken outside where they were tasked with using a fire extinguisher to put out a fire.

In total 26 staff members took part in the training and now know how to identify fires and extinguish them. The feedback we have received from the staff members was extremely positive and they are all far more confident now about their ability to react in the case of an emergency. While we hope that the members of staff never have reason to use these firefighting skills, we are pleased that they now have some knowledge with regards to the correct way to act and react in the event of fire breaking out. The training was an undoubted success and we hope to be able to develop and build the capacity of our staff members by holding more training workshops of this nature in the future.

QASA Management Meeting

On 21 May the management committee had a meeting at the Kopanong conference centre. QAWC was represented at this meeting by Richard Barron (QAWC chairperson) and Anthony Ghillino (QAWC project manager). The meeting was chaired by the QASA chairperson, Raven Benny, who lives in Cape Town and is a member of QAWC.
Various issues were discussed at the meeting and many decisions were made on the way forward. On the whole the QAWC representatives can report that QASA continues to grow and offer meaningful services to quadriplegics and paraplegics throughout the country. Each region gave a short report about their activities over the last few months and it was clear that QAWC remains one of the more active regions in our country.

QAWC had to update the QASA management about the progress made at our exciting new project, Villa Haven which will include the Digital Village. QAWC also reported on the status of the arrangements for the QASA AGM which will be held in Cape Town on 10 September 2011.

19 & 20 May 2011

QASA National Workshop

On the afternoon of 19 May representatives from across South Africa gathered for the QASA National Workshop. This workshop which continued until the afternoon of 20 May was attended by representatives from the various regions, self-help centres and management members. QAWC had a total of 4 representatives at the workshop, namely Ferdi Prins (Quasar), Vernon Persson (House Andries Olivier), Darran Colquhoun (Masonic Home) and Anthony Ghillino (QAWC project manager).
A number of superb guest speakers shared various information with the delegates. Delegates were informed about the new Consumer Protection Act and the way in which it will impact on non-profit organisations. Time was spent discussing the using of social networking media as a means to raise funds and inform the public of upcoming events and activities at self-help centres and within the regions. There is no doubt that social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook & YouTube can add great value to various initiatives.

Presenters also shared various fundraising ideas and placed emphasis on building relationships with both funders and within the community. Speakers from the Human Rights Commission explained the workings of the Human Rights Court and explained the process of laying a complaint to the delegates. It was very interesting to hear just how seriously each individual’s human rights are taken in South Africa.
Delegates were also treated to a presentation from a lady who works for a placement agency who emphasised that there are many job opportunities for people with disabilities in the formal workplace. The importance of good governance at self-help centres and regions was emphasised and many issues relating to this were discussed. It is vitally important to comply with the requirements laid out by the various departments and authorities to ensure that region’s and self-help centres continue to receive funding.
The QASA workshop was a huge success with a massive amount of information being shared. In addition to the formal workshop delegates had the opportunity to share information, network and to establish new and renew existing friendships. All in all the delegates from the Western Cape thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and came home with mountains of new information.

12 May 2011

Airport Parking Concession

QAWC was invited to participate and give input at a meeting regarding accessible parking at Cape Town International Airport. The meeting was held with Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA) representatives from the major airports in South Africa. The needs of people with mobility impairments were discussed at great length and it was heartening to see that ACSA takes the needs of this group seriously.

Cape Town International Airport have already made great improvements when it comes to accommodating people with disabilities. The drop and go area on the elevated road and staff who are dedicated to ensuring that the facility is used as it should be and to ensure that it does not get abused. By phoning ACSA in advance people with special needs can arrange to be met by a porter who will assist you into the terminal, to the check-in counter and on from their. All of this is aimed to ensure that a positive and trouble free experience for travellers who have special needs.

As the shaded parking which is allocated to long-term parking is not accessible we have been able to negotiate with ACSA who have agreed to a concession for people with disabilities. People with disabilities will be able to park and leave their vehicles in the Parcade on the ground floor at the same reduced fee that they would have been charged had they parked in the shaded area. ACSA have allocated 20 parking bays in prime spots to be used for this. In order to ensure that this concession does not get abused there is a form which needs to be filled in. This form is available from the QAWC secretary who will also be able to explain the entire process of securing this concession to you.

The organising committee of the Mitchell’s Plain Wheelchair Race met today at the WCRC to decide whether or not to host a race in 2011. There was some doubt about the future of the event as the road which we have previously used to hold the races on is going to be modified and will have speed bumps on it which would make holding a wheelchair race on it impossible.

The organising committee weighed at the various options available to them and decided to request permission to use an alternative part of the road on the Lentegeur Site. Fortunately permission has been granted and with this in mind the organising committee decided to go ahead with hosting a race in 2011. While the course for the 21 km race will change, the shorter races will still be held on the same route.

This year’s race will be the 3rd edition of the Mitchell’s Plain Wheelchair Race and as with the previous two races, it will take place on the first Saturday of November. The date for this year’s is therefore 5 November and we hope to see as many QAWC members as possible on the day. The race which is a joint venture between the WCRC Facility Board and QAWC has proved to be extremely popular and we are certain that this year’s race will be no different. Keep an eye on this space for entry forms as well as other information and news about 2011’s Mitchell’s Plain Wheelchair Race.

May 03 2011

This year’s QASA AGM will be held in Cape Town on 10 September. The search for a suitable accessible venue is underway and while we have already looked at one or 2 possibilities we are keen for your input and ideas. If you have any thoughts or another of a venue/venues which would be suitable for a function of this nature please contact the QAWC office and share your ideas.

Apr 28 2011

The Quadpara Association of the Western Cape recently advertised two vacancies which it intends to fill within the next month or so. The response to the advertisement was significant and numerous people expressed their interest in the positions, with numerous CV’s being sent to the QAWC office.

The process of drawing up a shortlist will begin shortly and those successful will be notified and invited to appear before the QAWC committee for an interview. We look forward to finalising this as soon as possible so that the successful applicants can be trained and our Digital Village can open its doors.
