MINDS Strategy

In line with MINDS vision and mission, our overarching strategy has always been a continual review, improvement, and evolution of our services in anticipation of our clients’ changing needs in their life-cycle. MINDS aims to provide a seamless range of quality services that meet the current and future needs of persons with intellectual disability (PWIDs) and their caregivers and be a leading player and thought leader in the sector.

The baby boom years of the 1960s saw MINDS providing education for PWIDs. As they grew up, MINDS advanced beyond early education to introduce vocational training in sheltered workshops and created employment opportunities for many PWIDs.

In recent years, MINDS has set up more training development centres (TDC), and a residential home as older PWIDs require greater support. A home-based service and a Me Too! Club was launched to assist and reach out to PWIDs who are unable to attend the TDCs for various reasons and PWID who are socially isolated, respectively.

To further enable integration and inclusion into society, MINDS has initiated a Community Group Home that encourages independent living among PWID who have relatively lower support needs. MINDS has also established a Caregiver Support Services Centre, which recognises and supports the critical role that caregivers play in giving PWIDs a better quality of life to realise their potential. New technologies have also been trialled; leveraging on Virtual Reality to enhance the independent living skills of MINDS’ students.
