Since 1934 the APD has helped thousands of South Africans to overcome the tragic consequences of physical disability; to discover for themselves that there IS life after physical disability.

Our Vision  We are totally committed to working in partnership with people who have physical disabilities, their families and the community as a whole, in order to promote their integration into society, and to enable them to achieve their full potential.

Our Mission  Our Mission is to provide relevant and quality services to persons with primarily physical disabilities and to the community as a whole, including services that:

  • Promote and protect the interests and well-being of persons with physical disabilities.
  • Further the development and empowerment of persons with physical disabilities.
  • Prevent the occurrence of disabling conditions.
  • Remove physical, legal and psycho-social barriers and foster non-disabled/disabled relationships to make it possible for persons with physical disabilities to live independently and to participate fully in their communities
