CaringSG Forum on Social Support and Residential Needs
CaringSG held a physical form on social support and residential needs on 20 Aug 2022 at Boon Lay Community Club. Twelve special needs families with three children attended the event.
Caregivers learnt about various forms of social support from Ms Chloe Huang (Deputy Director, Service Coordination and Advice, SG Enable).
Childminding activities were also provided for children who attended. The event was organised by three CAREkakis, two CAREambassadors, and four CaringSG staff and volunteers.
This event was also supported by the Enabling Lives Initiative Grant by SG Enable and Tote Board.
For all the caregivers out there, we see you care. And we care for you, too. For all the professionals who are out there, thank you for coming together with caregivers to learn and grow together.
A wonderful 3,000 caregivers and their loved ones joined us at the CARECarnivals, at Enabling Village, Kampung Admiralty, Heartbeat@Bedok
