Community Services

The Community Services department is where Deaf, Hard-of-hearing and DeafBlind clients and their families turn to for assistance in various areas. Our team of trained staff includes Social Workers, Case Managers, and Social Work Associates as well as Executives. We provide the following services free of charge to all SADeaf Clients. All Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents (PR) certified to have hearing loss can register themselves as our clients. Please refer to ‘Join us as a SADeaf Client’ to find out more. 

Information, Consultation and Referral

We provide information to clients and refer them to appropriate community resources and agencies where necessary.

Casework & Counselling

We support Deaf, Hard-of-hearing and DeafBlind  individuals across all ages who are facing financial, personal and family-related issues as well as psychosocial and emotional issues. All information are kept confidential between the case manager and the client.

Financial Assistance

Clients can approach us to help with applications for national financial assistance schemes such as Assistive Technology Fund (ATF) and Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund (SMF).

Employment Support

We provide Employment Support services to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community, which entails job matching and assistance on the job. 

SADeaf Employment Support’s objective is to sustain long-term employment for people with hearing loss in the open market. We aim to provide custodian care support to both our clients and our Deaf Friendly Employers (DFEs).

We publicise the current job opportunities that our DFEs provide on our official social media pages, and you can access our Facebook page at this link:
