Not all disabilities are visible and intellectual disability is one of them. Special Olympics Singapore gives people with intellectual disabilities (ID) the confidence they need to succeed, on and off the playing field.

At Special Olympics Singapore, we offer 9 Olympic-type sports and other health and leadership programme at no charge for all our athletes diagnosed with intellectual disabilities.

For the past 18 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly disrupted many sectors and especially, the charity sector.

The pandemic has significantly increased the cost of running these programmes and we rely heavily on the support of govt, grants, and donations from the public to continue providing these opportunities to our athletes to train and play sports in a guided and safe environment.

Your act of giving will go into funding the weekly training that provides meaningful training and competition opportunities for persons with intellectual disabilities.

About the Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently, it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
