Adults with Disabilities

To integrate adults with disabilities into society

Diagnosed with Rasmussen's Encephalitis, Veronica Tan has to use a wheelchair to move around and she did not welcome social interactions. Today, the meaningful engagements at SPD's Day Activity Centre (DAC) have equipped her with social, interpersonal and community living skills. Your support would give Veronica and other adults with disabilities the chance to gain independence.
