CAL was incorporated on 25 October 2011. Our founding members are Singapore Anglican Community Services, Caregivers' Association of the Mentally Ill and BinjaiTree Limited.
CAL is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC), which reflects that it is exclusively non-profit in nature. In 2019, CAL won the Charity Governance Award 2019 (medium charities category), awarded by the Charity Council in recognition of it having adopted the highest standards of governance, in line with the Code of Governance for Charities & IPCs.
The 12-week Caregivers-to-Caregivers (C2C) Programme for Persons with Mental Health Issues (PMHI) is CAL's signature training programme. It aims to provide caregivers with a more in depth understanding of mental health conditions, and to enable them to care for their loved ones better through learning about self-care, resilience building, advocacy and available community resources and support. The 8-week Caregivers-to-Caregivers (C2C) Programme (Dementia) was created to specifically meet the needs of caregivers of persons with dementia.
CAL's Individual Training and Support Programme (ITS) provides training and emotional support to caregivers who are unable to join in the C2C classes by imparting relevant knowledge and skills, and referring them to other agencies to meet their needs.
CAL has also established outreach teams to raise awareness of mental health and seek out and support caregivers in the community, corporations, faith-based groups, institutes of higher learning and government agencies.
