Somerset West Night Shelter Supervisor Axed!


On Tuesday we dismissed the Supervisor for: Gross dishonesty, abuse of position as supervisor and gross neglect of duty. 
The couple will still be on site till the end of September.  We will not look to employ ‘live-in’ supervisors again, but rather staff that come in for an allotted time.
We will be receiving support from the HAVEN.  They run 14 shelters within the Western Cape.
Our AGM will be held towards the end of September, we will advertise in the District Mail etc.  
We hope to meet on Thursday the 29th of September @ 3pm @ the Shelter.

In the meantime Nazleah still works in the office during the morning from 8 – 1 pm.  Just encase, her cell number is: 073 397 4391.  She is fully capable of handling any request etc.
Andre Venter has been running our Skills Development program on a voluntary basis.  We will offer him the day time manager position for a short fixed term contract.  The Haven will send us two Night Time Supervisors/Managers who will rotate, until we are able to find the right local candidates.  Andre can be reached on: 082 214 1912, please call him if you need to.  Either wise I am available.

Please know that this has been an extremely difficult process.  We are disappointed in the result, but have to do what is right for the Shelter and the clients we serve.

Kind Regards
Jo Swart
Hon Chairperson
