How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Online learning and skill development opportunities for persons with disabilities: Most of our trainings and engagements are now online. You will be contributing 10% overall cost for a member.

Training of Inclusion Ambassadors (IAs): The expense to train an Inclusion Ambassador is approximately $5,500. The amount donated will help the training of existing and new IAs.
Assistive technology training, purchase and support for a member: Most of our training and engagements are online. We need support to provide assistive technology devices to our members.

DPA has also faced disruption to our fundraising activities, which we rely on to support the training of Inclusion Ambassadors and help develop the inclusive and awareness-raising services they provide. If you have received the solidarity payment from the government and are in a position to help, or can support us with funds in any other way, we are appealing to your generosity to make a donation to our organisation.
We are relying on your kindness to help us raise the funds we need to support our Inclusion Ambassador programmes and related services and operations. Please help us continue working with the disability community to create an inclusive, accessible society we are all proud of.
Thank you on behalf of all of us at DPA.
Stay safe and healthy!
About the Charity
Disabled People's Association (DPA) is Singapore's only cross-disability non-profit organisation. We represent the disability community, working to build a fairer society where everyone can participate in all aspects of life from education to employment and access to social integration.
What we do?
A Voice of Our Own: We are an organisation for people with disabilities run by people with disabilities. We listen to the needs of all persons with disabilities in Singapore, their allies, carers and other social service organisations that provide essential services and we ensure their needs are represented at a national level. We provide a platform for all people with disabilities to speak up and ensure their voices are heard, and we represent those less able or comfortable to speak for themselves.
How we do it?
We help the disability community have a voice in society by working with decision-makers in political, commercial and educational institutions so that no decision that impacts us is made without us. We also provide training for both people with disabilities and the public, so we can work together to create an inclusive, accessible society we are all proud of.
