SPF Project



SPF - Call Centre

Funded by: Charlize Theron Africa Outreach

Programme Manager: Dr Paul Cromhout

Sector: Social

The SPF Call Centre was established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the outbreak of the virus, Care Workers were going to homes, schools and clinics to enroll orphans and vulnerable children into the various SPF programmes. This involved a lot of face-to-face interaction, and a lot of travelling. COVID-19 changed all of that and coming up with new ways of working was our goal. We had to create a way to reach our beneficiaries.

 

Gender Based Violence was further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic, perpetrators of violence were confined to their homes with survivors. This prompted us to create an Emergency response unit, with qualified and experienced social workers to respond to calls 24 Hours a day.

 

Call Centre:

Toll free: 08000 600 10
