What we do?
A Voice of Our Own: We are an organisation for people with disabilities run by people with disabilities. We provide a platform for all people with disabilities to speak up and ensure their voices are heard.
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.
Since 2015, DPA and Inclusion Ambassadors have offered talks, workshops, inclusive customer service training, sharing sessions and experiential activities to corporates, educational and religious institutions and government bodies as part of our Disability Awareness Training Series (DATS).
DPA ACCESS GUIDES
DPA works with our Inclusion Ambassadors to develop Access Guides for public institutions or places of interest in Singapore, so that persons with disabilities and their families have the relevant accessibility information they need to plan their visits to these places.
INCLUSION AMBASSADORS PROGRAMME
To promote disability leadership and amplify the voice of the people with disabilities, DPA members are trained to be Inclusion Ambassadors who raise awareness and promote inclusion through our DATS and Access Guide services. The Inclusion Ambassadors programme is the first of its kind in Singapore to provide a platform for professionally trained and paid persons with disabilities to be voices of change.
The Inclusive Flashmob is an annual collaborative event by DPA and Distinct Creative Arts (DCA) that aims to inculcate the spirit of inclusion amongst youths, by advocating for the Social Model of Disability through dance.
In order to advocate for the initiatives, policies and laws that improve the lives of persons with disabilities in Singapore, we need to be informed about what the needs are on the ground
