About Saint Giles

Saint Giles is a dynamic non-profit organisation with a heart for providing service and support to the disabled community in Durban. It has a long history and celebrated 65 years in 2017.

How do they enable the disabled you may ask …?

They:

  • have a remedial gym where people who are or have become disabled can come for exercise therapy with trained staff.
  • have a work centre which employs about 80 disabled people to pack, assemble or sort various products. These employees work on a full time basis with all the relevant benefits.
  • offer educational bursaries to financial needy disabled people who would like to study in academia.
  • have a charity shop where good quality second hand items are donated and sold to staff and the community for reasonable prices.
  • offer reduced appliance hire such as wheelchairs, walkers and crutches.

Saint Giles has all their official ducks in a row with various NPO certificates, including being level 1 B-BBEE certified.
