What happens after a student graduates from a special needs school? The best outcome is for open employment, but in reality, not many have the opportunity to secure employment...

At the CPAS Goodwill, Rehabilitation and Occupational Workshop,
we enhance the well being and quality of life of around 90 adult trainees with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities by providing them with sheltered employment.

Through commercial sub-contract work from our industry partners, our trainees earn an allowance for their work. Apart from the sheltered workshop, our social enterprise initiatives includes an art gallery, giftshop, Cafe, pushcarts and IT & Office Services. These initiatives provide opportunities for our trainees to pick up useful skills towards open employment, which we actively solicit.

Cerebral palsy is a lifelong and non curable condition resulting from a brain damage. Many of our clients are limited in their mobility, muscle control, posture and use some form of mobility aids.

In conjunction with World Cerebral Palsy Month in October, CPAS GROW program will like to reach out to donors to make a contribution to the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign. Suzy is the iconic ambassador and donation box of CPAS and she raises awareness and critical funds to fund all programs and services at CPAS.

Every dollar counts as donations to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar by Toteboard and the government.

Thank you from everyone at GROW and CPAS!
