Employment

Employment helps PwDs lead more fulfilling and independent lives.

SG Enable will serve as a focal point to support the needs of persons with disabilities. One of the key functions of SG Enable is to enhance the employability and employment options for persons with disabilities by leveraging on the strengths of existing partners and schemes.

Schemes for Employers and Persons with Disabilities in Employment

The Open Door Programme (ODP)  is an initiative to enhance the employment and employability options for persons with disabilities. It is funded by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF). ODP supports employers in hiring and integrating employees with disabilities.

The Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) and the Special Employment Credit (SEC) extended to PwDs and their employers from 2012. For more information on the SEC, please visit the SEC website. For more information on WIS, please visit the WIS website or call the Workfare hotline at 1800-222-6622 (Monday to Friday: 8am - 5.30pm).
