National data collection agency, info4Africa, has this week released the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Series 7 support services directory in both electronic and hardcopy form.

The info4africa provincial directory contains detailed information on over 2300 organisations in KZN involved in health, wellbeing and development service provision. This directory forms part of info4africa’s national database, which covers the whole of South Africa.

The directory is intended for vulnerable people or families across KZN that are in need of support in a number of areas. The directory specifically contains details of organisations providing services and support to vulnerable groups in all areas of the province.

The directory is also designed to assist support service providers in the work that they do with vulnerable groups. Service providers can use the directory to connect with service organisations in any area of the province, and refer clients to organisations for additional support and assistance. Info4africa’s stated mission of ‘collecting data, connecting communities’ is evidenced through their thorough commitment to capturing accurate, relevant information on service providers and making it easily accessible for all South Africans.

info4africa Director, Debbie Heustice, said: “The KZN provincial directory contains comprehensive information on more than 2300 health, wellbeing and development service providers in the province, whilst our full database covers the whole of SA. Through a concerted and well coordinated data collection effort, our team updates and adds organisations to the national database throughout the year, enabling us to release provincial directories throughout the year.”

“A recent survey we conducted found that organisations working in these realms appreciate the indepth information we provide, as it saves them time and makes it easy for them to collaborate with like-minded organisations. Our full database is also accessible via our website, mobisite, mobile phone directory and users can also send us an SMS if they need help finding a suitable organisation,” added Heustice.
