About Campaign

Social interaction is critical, especially in one's later years, as it generates a sense of belonging and well-being.

The Outing for the Elderly Fund was started to enable home-bound seniors to enjoy being out and hopefully reduce their sense of social isolation.

Managed by CFS, the fund enables charitable organisations to bring frail seniors; many wheelchair bound; on regular, organised excursions to attractions such as museums, Gardens by the Bay, the Singapore Flyer, River Safari or even supermarkets. The fund covers admission costs as well as transportation and refreshments and all charities taking care of the elderly are eligible to apply for it.

So far, the fund has brought over 7,300 seniors from some 60 eldercare centres and homes on more than 500 outings. Your contribution will enable even more seniors to enjoy being out and about on more outings.
