What are the Enabling Masterplans?
The masterplans are five-year roadmaps for the government and the community to work together, to support persons with disabilities (PwDs). The Enabling Masterplans cover many areas across each life stage, including early detection, education, employment, health, assistive technology, infrastructure, among others.
These masterplans help us build a caring and inclusive Singapore, where persons with disabilities are recognised as, and empowered to be, integral and contributing members of society.
Three masterplans have been released, beginning with the first Enabling Masterplan introduced in 2007. Singapore is currently on our Third Enabling Masterplan (2017 – 2021).

How far have we come under the Third Enabling Masterplan?
Under the EMP 3, we have made great strides to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities, support caregivers and build the community, and to build an inclusive society. Several new developments, such as new early intervention programmes, and more affordable SPED school fees, have been made in the Early and schooling years.
Progress has also been made in other areas of life, such as measures to support the employment of persons with disabilities, improve access to healthcare and the built environment, and strengthen caregiver support, digital inclusion, and inclusion in leisure and recreation.
