Established in 1964, SPD is a charity that serves people with disabilities of all ages, working with them to develop their potential to the fullest so that they can be integrated into mainstream society. We hope for an inclusive community where everyone, regardless of abilities, is a part and not apart. Through programmes and services that encompass therapy, vocational skills training, employment support, assistive technology, early intervention, day care, educational and social support, we seek to enable people with disabilities to be self-reliant and independent.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
The funds raised from the YFC 2018 programme will go to our general fund where it can be used to subsidize persons with disabilities from low income families so that they can participate and benefit from our programmes and services such as:
– Day Activity Centre
– Development Support Programme
– Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC)
– Employment Support Programme
– Financial Assistance
– Continuing Therapy Programme
– Employment Support Programme (ESP) Training
– Rehabilitation services
– Specialised Assistive Technology
– Specialised Case Management Programme
– Special Door-to-Door Transport Service


Engaging and involving the YFC participants
We will begin with a tour of our centre facilities along with a brief introduction on our programmes and services so as to allow the team members to gain more insight of the Organisation. This will be followed by open channels of communication on a regular basis so that the team can acquire more in-depth knowledge of our organisation and its cause. Likewise in this two-way communication, SPD will also be updated on the progress of the team and to give relevant advice and guidance at regular intervals. Once greater rapport between the staff & team members are established, this will greatly facilitate the team’s fundraising activities and they will be more driven to advocate & fund raise for the organisation.
