11 Welcome to the South African Care Forum website.
The South African Care Forum has been established as a non-profit company (2012/161336/08).
The SACF provides a platform for conversation and collaboration in the care sector at all levels – regionally, nationally and internationally. It provides the only known platform in South Africa where the aged-care and disability sectors come together for the greater good – to raise the bar of care in South Africa. Together, these sectors will unify efforts and energies, and develop alliances.
Social impact will be created through collaboration.
Why the SACF?
Numerous forums exist in South Africa in the aged-care and disability sectors, but there appears to be little cohesion. The SACF is not “replacing” other forums. It hopes to work with and collaborate with them, to find synergy among them. A survey was conducted, and the need was expressed for a forum that was “different”; a forum through which all the role players could actively engage together. This forum will become the official voice for the care industry and grow a reputation for excellence and best practices.
