About Campaignends 27 Mar 2017, 11:59 PM
Alongside this showcase we will be holding our Joint Flag Day. We hope to raise the much needed funds to cover our daily operations and programmes.
DPA's role is to advocate on behalf of persons with disabilities and those who support them. DPA does this by providing services such as facilitating disability awareness talks, conducting research and hosting awareness raising events. Management and facilitation of these activities require funding. Flag Day is one of the venue DPA can raise funds for its activities. For more information, please visit www.dpa.org.sg
The mission of VSA is to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunities to participate in the arts for rehabilitation and social integration. To achieve this, VSA Singapore promotes the educational, social, rehabilitative and therapeutic benefits of the arts through three main programmes - Arts in Learning, Rehabilitation and Training (ALERT), Arts for Livelihood and Employment (ALIVE), and Arts for Performance and Expression (APEX).

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.
