ComCare is guided by the following key principles:
ComCare supports persons and families who need temporary help as they work towards self-reliance.
ComCare focuses on building and enabling the family to be the pillar of support for its members.
ComCare recognises every individual and family is unique and ensures assistance is delivered in a coordinated manner and meets their needs.
Through ComCare, the Government partners community groups and organisations such as Grassroots Organisations, Voluntary Welfare Organisations and Self-Help Groups to provide help.
ComCare provides social assistance for low-income individuals and families. ComCare assistance is available at the Social Service Offices (SSOs).
ComCare programmes are funded by the Community Care Endowment Fund (ComCare Fund). The ComCare Fund was established in 2005 and it provides sustainable funding for assistance programmes for low-income Singaporeans. The ComCare Fund stands at $1.7 billion today.
