Description of Organization
The Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) is the national sports body for persons with disabilities (PWD) in Singapore. The goal of SDSC is to enable persons with disabilities (PWD) to realize their potential through sports and therefore improve their well-being, leading them to live full and independent lives.

Founded on the belief in the dignity, capability and value of persons with disabilities, sports for people with disabilities form the very cornerstone of SDSC’s existence. An advocate of disability sports for the past 45 years, SDSC trains talents to represent Singapore and pursue excellence at regional and international competitions.

To sustain the programmes and opportunities, SDSC depends on the kind and generous contributions of corporate sponsors and members of the public to advance its cause.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2019 programme
The funds raised will be critical to sustaining sports opportunities for our beneficiaries over 20 sports and across all disability groups. Scope of fund utilisation will be deployed in Pathway Development, Coach Development, Competition Opportunities, Management Capability, Data Analytics & Information, Sports Science & Medicine, Training Environment and Infrastructure & Software.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants
SDSC takes pride in providing enriching programmes to the beneficiaries and the volunteers alike. For student volunteers, SDSC often wants to inculcate a sense of belonging to the persons with disabilities community, by inspiring them with the stories and values that they can take with them after each event/programme.

For the student volunteers from YFC, SDSC will induct them through a series of activities such as introduction, participation at our events and working closely with the council to execute their ideas for YFC 2019.
