Temporary Closure of MINDS Shops
Dear Friends of MINDS Shop,

As you are aware, the alert level on the nCoV situation has been raised to orange. We have been advised by our governing authorities to minimise visitors to our centres as we are serving a vulnerable group. As such we regret to inform you that we will be temporarily closing all MINDS Shops, and we will not be accepting donations until further notice.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. We will miss your presence, and we look forward to serving you again real soon when the situation improves (we know it will!).

MINDS runs 4 flagship thrift stores named MINDS Shop, where we provide pre-vocational training to our clients in retail and customer service. Each store carries a unique range of carefully selected furniture, clothes, collectibles and house wares that we think deserve a new lease of life. We strive to create an enjoyable shopping experience for our customers by ensuring that our goods are value-for-money and constantly updated.

For a more in-depth understanding of our amazing Thrift Shops located island wide, please visit us at: https://www.se.minds.org.sg/minds-shop.

MINDS Shop serves as a valuable avenue for our intellectually disabled clients to learn how to interact with customers. It also provides a chance for members of our society to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by our clients. Besides the day-to-day operations of managing the store and sorting through the goods, our clients also learn how to be resourceful such as by making good out of recycled and unwanted items.

MINDS Shop Plus – a community shop for the community

In 2012, MINDS partnered NTUC Healthcare (previously known as NTUC Eldercare) to open a thrift store in the Redhill community. The main objective was to have matured workers partnering our MINDS clients to operate a thrift store. We believe that the former would be a good mentor for our clients as they were more patient. Matured workers would also be more sympathetic towards the challenges our clients face as they themselves could be discriminated for taking a longer time to adapt to new tasks.

MINDS Shop Plus also prepares our clients for full time employment in the open market. We build up their endurance and soft skills as they learn to travel independently to work and also work shift hours including weekends. The clients go through this phase in a semi-supported environment as the matured workers are also trained to guide persons with special needs.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners from NTUC Healthcare for this wonderful collaboration!
