Growing disability-friendly attitudes and services
A range of agencies work to support families in need, but many say they do this despite minimal experience in working with children with disabilities. Uhambo Foundation runs disability-related programmes for:
- Government Social Workers, Auxiliary Social Workers, Foster Carers and Safety Parents.
- Social and Community Workers from other NPOs
- Community Workers
- Police Forces
- Departments of Justice
- Departments of Health
Training sessions involve disability sensitisation, the support of organisations in streamlining their programmes and referral mechanisms to support and include children with disabilities and their families.
