Ministry of Health and Social Services

The Ministry of Health and Social Services provides in-kind through the subsidised use of their premises, as well as subsidised utilities. They also provide human resource support through seconded social work services.

Funding Priorities


We run 4 broad programmes namely special needs education, therapy, psychosocial support and enterprise development, all of which – especially the first two – are very labour intensive and costly.

People with disabilities or special needs have specific support needs which we aim to meet the best of our ability. These needs may include intensive care, low teacher-student ratio, dietary requirements, special educational or development materials, wheelchairs, physiotherapy / occupational therapy apparatus and the like.

Our programmes also include daily nutrition – two meals per day, weekly – and supplemental development through music, movement, culture and sport.

Land and Buildings

We are accommodated in a government building and we are extremely grateful for this. The building, however, does not meet the criteria for a school set-up nor for the running of a residential child care facility.

We need a secure perimeter, additional and functional classes and amenities, and of course, the safety of our children and staff is a high priority.

Towards this funding priority, please contact us for more information should you wish to support us on this.

Capacity Development and Support

We cannot do what we do without the necessary skilled and experienced management and staff.

Our staff, training and capacity needs range from administrative, educator to occupational / speech and language / physical therapy and the likes, as well as enterprise development, fundraising, occupational health and safety, sustainability etc – all to help us provide the best service and support to our children, youth and families living with disabilities.
