The Summerstrand Cheshire Home, situated in Gomery Avenue, Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, was opened in 1975 by the late Professor Jan Christiaan Barnard. The Home caters for chronically physically disabled adults who come to live their lives there, either by choice, or because of circumstances beyond their control. Our residents range from the ages of 18 onwards. In addition the Home has an outreach programme, Khaya Cheshire, in Walmer Township. This is a “Care and Development Centre” for physically/mentally disabled children whom we strive to teach and get back into the mainstream of education.
Applications are open for the annual SAB Foundation Social Innovation Awards and Disability Empowerment Awards.
