Our vision is that all wheelchair users and people with physical disability will live their lives to their full potential.
QAWC is a non profit organisation (NPO) of Quadriplegics and Paraplegics and offers a number of services to build the capacity of our members and work towards a more inclusive South Africa.
If you are a wheelchair user or person with a physical disability living in the Western Cape you can sign up to be a QAWC Member today and access a range of supports to help you study, find employment, learn to drive, access the community, medical supplies and more.
We are proudly affiliated with the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA).
All Members of QAWC will automatically become members of QASA, and are eligible to access QASA supports.
If you are not a wheelchair user, you can also access a number of QAWC supports including disability sensitization training, prevention and awareness campaigns, care attendant training, disability access advice, and more.
