Singapore Cares is our nation’s journey towards a more caring, compassionate, and inclusive society where every individual is empowered to give, and no act of giving or kindness is too small. Singapore Cares hopes to foster partnerships, build networks, and proliferate meaningful opportunities for citizens to give back in impactful ways. From daily acts of kindness to volunteering together with friends, colleagues, neighbours and others - every action matters. Together, we can all play a part, big and small, to make Singapore a more caring and compassionate home for all.
