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 Caregiver Action Map aims to guide and inspire organisations to implement solutions to better support caregivers of persons with disabilities. Co-developed by SG Enable and its Coalition of Partners for Caregiver Support, with the support of the Institute of Policy Studies, the action map comprises more than 60 ideas in three key areas: user-centric service delivery, self-help and mutual support, and community and social inclusion.

SG Enable 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
Our Consumer Inclusiveness workshops aim to guide organisations towards greater inclusion, expanding their market share to better serve consumers with disabilities. Each workshop covers one of these two areas: how to review e-accessibility of their products and services, and how frontline staff can interact with consumers with disabilities.

Contact us to find out how your organisation can embark on a Consumer Inclusiveness journey with SG Enable.

Enabling Guide
A first-stop resource portal 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 started out in 2018 as an initiative to celebrate and shine a spotlight on the abilities of persons with disabilities. Its notable collaborations include featuring artworks of persons with disabilities on snack boxes and amenity kits by Singapore Airlines, and on the National Day Parade 2020 collaterals.

In 2020, i'mable expanded to a national-level public education initiative which celebrates the abilities of persons with disabilities and encourages everyone to recognise abilities, take positive action for disability inclusion and commit to building a more inclusive society and enabling lives. It is supported by Tote Board with the Enabling Lives Initiative and by National Council of Social Service with the Care & Share Movement.
