Definitions of disabilities vary widely among countries.
We follow the definition adopted in the national Enabling Masterplan. Persons with disabilities refer to those whose prospects of securing, retaining places and advancing in education and training institutions, employment and recreation as equal members of the community are substantially reduced as a result of physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities as well as autism.
We are passionate about building an inclusive Singapore where we focus on abilities and celebrate diversity.
In this place we call home, everyone belongs and persons with disabilities are valued as integral members of society. They are a part of us, not apart from us.
To realise this vision, we rally partners to join us as an advocate for greater disability inclusion. We are a catalyst to ignite change and foster innovation. We come alongside our partners as an enabler to build a robust ecosystem of support for persons with disabilities.
Read about our work in building an Inclusive Society in 2021 —
Persons with disabilities are at the heart of all we do.
We envision persons with disabilities living in an inclusive society where they can access information, opportunities, products, services and environments like everyone – from their early years, through adolescence, and into adulthood. With the right accommodations and support, they can fulfil their highest potential and be contributing members of society. Caregivers are the first line of support for them, and we work with partners to support caregivers too.
