These efforts further the vision set out in Singapore’s Enabling Masterplan to enable all persons with disabilities to fulfil their potential and participate as integral and contributing members of society.
The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) announced a suite of new initiatives to enhance the support for persons with disabilities and their families, across their life stages.

The Ministry for Social and Family Development (MSF) announced the addition of seven new members to the Council for Board Diversity (CBD) in 2021. The members will serve a two-year term.

This change refreshes a third of the Council, providing the opportunity to tap on fresh perspectives and valuable insights.
