Costs and Grants related to Day Activity Centre Services for Adults with Disabilities

Type: Parliamentary Questions

Topic(s): Disability Services


Ms Denise Phua Lay Peng asked the Minister for Social and Family Development (a) what is the current per capita cost of running Day Activity Centre services for adults with disabilities with moderate to high needs; and (b) what is the current per capita grants provided by the Government for such Day Activity Centre services.

 

Answer:

1. The per capita cost of running Day Activity Centre (DAC) services varies depending on each centre’s programming and operational considerations.

2. Government funding to DACs is tiered according to the care needs of clients. Government funding to DACs is also means-tested, depending on each client’s income level. In FY2022, the average amount of Government grants provided to DACs was about $14,000 per client.

3. Besides funding from the Government, DACs also receive funding from the community, such as through Tote Board and their own fund-raising.
