Our services

The following are the services we offer to our deaf or hard-of-hearing clients. Others like Interpretation, Notetaking and Sign Language courses are open to all.

Casework & Counselling

The Community Services (CS) department is where Deaf and hard-of-hearing clients and their families can turn to for assistance in various areas. Our team of social workers, case managers and social work assistants are on hand to provide a diverse range of services to clients such as personal development, family issues, coping skills, needs assessment and managing expectations.

Financial Aid & Employment Support

We facilitate the application of financial assistance schemes such as Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund (SMF), Assistive Technology Fund (ATF) and Special Assistance Fund (SAF). We also provide job placement assistance such as job matching and career guidance.

Learning Support & Speech Therapy

Learning Support: Provide one-to-one intervention to students with hearing loss who are currently attending mainstream schools ranging from pre-school to tertiary level. Speech therapy: Provide one-to-one intervention to enhance students' listening, articulation and language comprehension skills.

Hearing Test & Equipment Aids

Staffed by a qualified audiologist, SADeaf’s Hearing Care Centre (HCC) provides a full spectrum of hearing care-related services. Besides hearing tests and consultations, clients and members can also get their ear moulds made at the HCC and purchase batteries and other accessories at nominal rates.

Interpretation & Notetaking

Our staff interpreters have extensive interpreting experience in a diverse range of settings – at schools, law courts, corporate workshops, government functions among other places and events. We also have a pool of note-takers who are deployed mostly to clients studying in institutes of higher learning such as ITEs, polytechnics and universities. Note-takers are carefully matched to clients based on their skill-sets and background.

Sign Language Courses

We offer a range of sign language courses and customised awareness workshops/programmes. We also cater to the needs of frontline professionals such as medical staff, police, emergency and social workers.

Flag Day 2021 - Surging ahead with Tenacity

A year has passed since COVID-19 stormed the world. Many have been affected by it physically and/or financially. SADeaf has too endured a torrid and challenging 2020; receiving lesser donations and a reduction in the number of donors.

Will there be a cure for COVID-19? When will life return to how it used to be? No one knows exactly what life will look like in the future.

Surging ahead with tenacity and braving the new norm, SADeaf is launching our Flag Day 2021 campaign from 1st Jan 2021 till 31st March 2021. We urge support from everyone to sustain our services for the Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing and Deafblind community and build up capabilities and resources to face uncertainties of the future.

The SADeaf 2021 Flag Day Campaign will be accepting donation via the following modes:

– Online donation via giving.sg
