Partner Profile – Durban South Community Advice Centre
In many communities of the Durban South Basin, people struggle with legal issues related to housing, family, debt, crime, property, and other matters that affect their well-being. Those who are poor, geographically isolated, or otherwise vulnerable often cannot obtain assistance in solving their justice problems. They may suffer under discriminatory laws or lack the legal means to enforce norms that should protect them. Community-based programme initiatives, like DSCAC, contribute to helping communities that lack access to the legal system to resolve their justice and community-based issues.
Towards the end of 2020, a group of friends and concerned individuals got together, through a series of formal and informal meetings, to have discussions, centred around ‘community upliftment’. This space would operate as a legal entity with the ability to raise funds for projects and services that would benefit those in need.
