Guiding Principles of Enabling Masterplan 2012-2016
Enabling Masterplan 2012-2016 adopts a life-course approach starting with the early pre-school years, then to the education and employment phase of life, and the adult and ageing years. The Masterplan identifies the needs of persons with disabilities at every phase of life, as well as gaps in the current landscape. Policies, programmes and services have been recommended to plug the gaps. The needs of caregivers have also been studied so as to support families in caring for persons with disabilities.
The Enabling Masterplan Steering Committee was chaired by Mr Chua Chin Kiat, who is also Chairman of the Centre for Enabled Living, which is the first stop Information and Referral centre for persons with disabilities and the elderly, and their caregivers. The composition of the Steering Committee reflects the 3P (People-Private-Public Sector) approach, with representatives from NCSS, voluntary welfare organisations as well the private and public sectors. Some members are themselves persons with disabilities or parents and caregivers of persons with disabilities.
We continue to welcome feedback and insights from persons with disabilities, family, friends, employers and caregivers of persons with disabilities and the general public. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can fully maximise the potential of every person with disability and fully embrace them in society.
