Services that are currently offered

The Advice Centre assists in access to information; referrals, legal advice and legal assistance on a wide range of issues concerning accessing of birth certificates & identification documents; accessing social grants; labour mediation; evictions; unemployment; domestic violence; child abuse and disability issues. They also provide assistance to refugees and asylum seekers.

In addition, the centre runs a daycare centre called Itsoseng. It was first established for the children of employees at the advice centre but there was a greater demand that was needed to be fulfilled in the greater Orange Farm community. Therefore they opened the day care centre to all members of the community who were interested. The funds also help both in the operation of the day care centre as well as the advice centre.

The Advice Centre also runs a recycling project which contributes to the funds needed to run the centre. The project also alleviates pollution and empowers the community by showing them sustainable grassroots initiatives and alternative ways of making money whilst saving the environment.

Other sustainable grassroots initiatives include the urban farming project which the centre runs in the garden on the land it operates on.
