APD Nelson Mandela Bay was established in 1940 and has a proven track record of good governance and financial accountability. All financial transactions are handled by the organisation’s accounts department and reflect in the accounting systems and financial reports. The various projects (including Wheelchair Wednesday) are accurately recorded in APD’s financial statements and are audited annually.
Strong financial systems and accurate budgeting enable us to provide immediate feedback to sponsors on the current status of all our projects.
The organisation is overseen by an Executive Board consisting of 10 members who meet on a monthly basis. The experience and expertise of the Exco members ensure that the organisation remains aligned to its mission and objectives.
A strong management team consisting of 10 department managers is responsible for the smooth day-to-day operation of the various projects we operate and services we provide. The management team meets monthly to discuss operational and departmental issues. Minutes of meetings and department reports are submitted for consideration at the monthly Executive meetings.
BLC is encouraged by the incredible work done by the APD in the Metro. It is to this extent that we have continued to support them through generous cash donations for their Christmas hampers and are proud participants in their annual Wheelchair Wednesday Initiative.
