Enabling Masterplans

The Enabling Masterplans are five-year roadmaps that guide Singapore towards becoming a more caring and inclusive society. It is a roadmap for the government and the community to work together in addressing the challenges faced by persons with disabilities in Singapore. There are many facets that have been worked on from early detection, education, employment, public transportation and infrastructure, and support services.

Three masterplans have been released, beginning with the first Enabling Masterplan introduced in 2007.   

3rd Enabling Masterplan 2017-2021

The 3rd Enabling Masterplan builds on the progress of the previous two masterplans and will guide initiatives from 2017 to 2021. The 3rd Enabling Masterplan Steering Committee envisions Singapore to be a caring and inclusive society where persons with disabilities are empowered to achieve their fullest potential and participate fully as integral and contributing members of society. The 3rd Enabling Masterplan was submitted by the Steering Committee to the Ministry on 20 December 2016.
