Alta du Toit
 The Alta du Toit Aftercare Centre is a centre where adults with intellectual disabilities receive physical and nursing care, and are developed to reach their full potential. We have more than 170 residential clients and close to 60 daycare clients. They all take part in an established skills development programme to ensure optimal development throughout their adult lives. Aside from the work groups, clients can also participate in sports and social activities such as
athletics, singing and dancing. The Centre is more than 36 years old and is situated in Boston, Bellville, serving communities in the Western Cape including persons from previously disadvantaged communities. Our vision is to be the leader in the field of service delivery to persons with intellectual disability. Care to people with intellectual disability is expensive, mainly due to the high
staff/client ratio. A third of the clients living at the Centre do not have parents or families to pay the required monthly fees. The budget of the Centre makes provision for a discount of R650 000 per annum due to the financial support that must be given to families who cannot afford to pay the full monthly fees. There are also a large group of older clients that necessitates more staff and more specialized care. The buildings of the Centre are old and require a lot of ongoing maintenance. Main sources of income for Alta du Toit Aftercare consist of contributions received from the Government, Parents/Family and the Community. People with intellectual disabilities qualify for a disability grant from the state – currently just more than R1400 per month. The centre receives a subsidy from the state based on clients level of care required. All our clients receive disability pensions, but on average there is still a shortfall of about R3300 per client per month to meet the unit and operating costs. The operational budget of the Centre is R11 million for the 2014/2015 financial year. Taking this into consideration it is clear that funding is extremely important for the sustainability of the Centre. Most clients live at the Alta du Toit Aftercare centre for their entire adult life. One of the major challenges is the fact there comes a time when family members responsible for this monthly contribution might no longer be in a position to pay the account. This can be due to ageing, limited income or death. In the past financial year the centre provided financial assistance to the families amounting to R650 000. The centre therefore
depends on donations from businesses, individuals, churches and other institutions.
