Assistive Devices

Many persons with disabilities require the use of an assistive device for independence, but these devices are usually extremely expensive and therefore unaffordable for the majority. The public health system does what it can to provide devices, but the demand is huge and it cannot entirely fulfill the need.

NCPD is not in a position to fund assistive devices, but from time to time, we are approached by donors wishing to fund assistive devices, which we can then pass on to individuals requiring devices.

If you or someone you know requires an assistive device, you are welcome to complete the online enquiry form and select “Assistive Devices”.
