SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT LAUNCHES THE FIRST MULTIMEDIA CENTRE WITH SPECIALISED PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN WITH DYSLEXIA IN GAUTENG

The Department of Social Development is mandated by the Constitution to provide social protection and welfare services to vulnerable individuals, groups and communities. Women, children, older persons and persons with disabilities form part of the core focus areas for the Department.

The strategic pillar 6 of the White Paper on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (WPRPD) which is overseen by the Department of Social Development and was approved by Cabinet in 2015, advocates for strengthening the representative voice of persons with disabilities, particularly the under-represented groups whose voices are not heard on existing platforms.
