Cresset House is a village in Glen Austen in Midrand which caters for adults with intellectual disabilities.
There are approximately 50 villagers who live in 6 houses on the property. In each house there is a house parent, a co-worker and a domestic. There is a workshop where the villagers work on contracts that we might get e.g. putting shower caps into boxes for the hotels. Those who can’t manage that are part of a stimulation group where they colour or do puzzles under supervision. We used to have a large organic vegetable garden and tunnels but unfortunately due to the drought last year and an influx of rabbits these are no longer. Some villagers work outside and there is a woodworking area where some of the villagers can make simple things e.g. bread boards.
