Community Group Homes (CGHs)

CGHs provide an alternative housing for persons with disabilities who require minimum support within the community. They aim to enhance the quality of life of persons with disabilities through social inclusion and train them to live with minimum support in the community for as long as possible.


Overview of Programme

CGHs enable persons with disabilities to live independently in designated HDB rental flats retrofitted with disabled-friendly features.

Residents can access a range of community-based services and facilities conveniently with support from community partners and volunteers.

SG Enable provides referrals to CGHs for adults with disabilities in Singapore.
