Coalition of Partners for Caregiver Support

The Coalition of Partners for Caregiver Support (Coalition) was formed on 30 May 2018 by SG Enable to share and learn from one another on how to better support caregivers of persons with disabilities. It also offers a platform for members to identify challenges, discuss and brainstorm for solutions and explore collaborative efforts.

The Coalition is currently made up of 25 community partners, social service agencies and hospitals committed to providing support to caregivers.  SG Enable serves as a convenor and facilitator of the Coalition. Public agencies like the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), Institute of Mental Health (IMH), National Council of Social Service (NCSS), Ronald McDonald House Charities Singapore and Tote Board have been invited to share related programmes and participate in the discussion.

Together, SG Enable and the Coalition have co-created a Caregiver Action Map, supported by the Institute of Policy Studies with design thinking. The map comprises more than 60 ideas and solutions that guides and inspires organisations to implement solutions to better support caregivers of persons with disabilities. The ideas generated were also based on feedback from the ground, including caregivers, as part of the design thinking process.

SGE welcomes new partners to the Coalition as it will bring in different perspectives, enrich the conversations and create more opportunities for members to learn from one another. This will allow the Coalition to better perform its role in creating a well-coordinated support system that holistically addresses the needs of caregivers. 

Participation in the Coalition is only open to Social Service Agencies, Social Enterprises, Community Agencies and Partners. The Coalition is currently not open to individuals or informal groups. Interested agencies can write in to caregivers@sgenable.sg. 

Consumer Inclusiveness Workshop
The Consumer Inclusiveness Workshop aims to help organisations to be more inclusive and expand your market share to better serve consumers with disabilities. Learners will gain knowledge on how to interact with consumers with disabilities and learn practical tips to review products and services to gauge if they are accessible for consumers with disabilities.

Enabling Guide
A first-stop resource for persons with disabilities and their caregivers.

Aimed to help persons with disabilities make informed decisions about the schemes and services that best suit their life stage – the Enabling Guide pulls together various relevant information and resources available in Singapore. The portal provides information on disability schemes and services, and guides users in making more informed decisions about different service options across the life stages. 
 

The Enabling Village is a community space that brings a range of facilities and services under one roof for persons with disabilities. These include training and employment support, information and referral services, and a variety of facilities and programmes.

 

i’mable celebrates and brings attention to the abilities of persons with special needs. i’mable seeks to bring together the 3Ps of public, private and people sectors in order to change perceptions, create more opportunities, and take positive action for persons with disabilities through collaboration, inclusive hiring, sponsorship and social procurement.

The hope of i’mable is that it becomes a movement leading ultimately to an inclusive Singapore where every individual is valued for who they are, where everyone comes together to enable one another, and where together, everyone can climb higher and go further.
