  • Shampoo & Conditioner
  • Toothbrushes & toothpaste
  • Razors and Prep cream

Social Care

Winter is here!  While our clients queue indoors for the showers indoors when the weather is bad we would love to play some educational DVD’s of the various courses that we have on hand.

  • Big screen TV (for our group workshops, training and to play educational media when clients queue indoors for the ablutions)
  • Emergency sleeping bags – if you are keen to help us make some, please contact janet@tcs.org.za
