Hospital-to-Work Programme

Hospital-to-Work Programme

Overview of Programme

The Hospital-to-Work (H2W) Programme provides persons with acquired disabilities* with support and opportunities to overcome the challenges in gaining sustainable employment. Support is coordinated through a H2W Case Manager who will focus support on a client’s skills enhancements or re-skilling, complemented by employment services such as job placement and job support.

*Disabilities supported are: Intellectual Disability, Physical Disability, Hearing impairment and Visual impairment.

With a person-centric approach, the H2W programme allows for a higher degree of participation from clients due to its focus on their strengths and capabilities, rather than their limitations.

H2W will help clients identify personal goals that are achievable, with each goal developed into manageable steps that clients can feel confident in achieving. Hence, developing their self-confidence, allowing them to participate actively in the larger community and contribute to society.

The H2W programme is administered by SG Enable, an agency set up by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, dedicated to serve persons with disabilities. Clients will be supported by H2W service providers such as SPD and SG Enable.
