Supporting people's struggles towards agrarian and societal transformation.

The Support Centre for Land Change is a land rights and land justice organisation, working with primarily rural communities in the Garden Route, Central Karoo and western regions of the Eastern Cape.

SCLC, making a difference since 1987

We focus on key issues that include labour-and tenure rights of farm and forestry workers and dwellers, access to and sustainable use of land and resources for small-scale subsistence farmers and producers, in support and solidarity for communities resisting land “developments “that threaten their homes, livelihoods, health and heritage. The work is rooted in human and constitutional rights with land justice as the point of departure.
