We have some fun and meaningful events coming up to help generate greater disability awareness and raise funds for our cause. We hope to have your support.
 
 
SPD Ability Fun Walk

Even as Singapore continues to modify its built environment to reduce physical barriers and strive to become a more inclusive society, there are still people with disabilities and special needs among us who may not be included in community activities.

The inaugural SPD Ability Fun Walk presents an opportunity for everyone of different abilities to walk together. It also serves to promote inclusion and raise funds for programmes and services that SPD provides to help more people with disabilities integrate into the community. A carnival awaits all after the 3km-walk where there will be food as well as games that will allow participants to know a bit more about disability issues.
