General

The Singapore Anglican Community Services (SACS), formerly the Singapore Anglican Welfare Council (SAWC), is part of the community service arm of the Diocese of Singapore. We are an affiliate of the National Council of Social Service.

SACS is managed by a dedicated team of committed volunteers and professional staff.

Currently, SACS serves the community through the provision of psychiatric services, senior services and services for special groups.

Our Vision

Singapore Anglican Community Services reaches out to people in need, with the love of Christ.

Our Mission

The mission of SACS is to minister to and carry out the community services and welfare work amongst the needy, destitute and impoverished according to the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ.

OUR SERVICES

Psychiatric Services

Since the 1986, the Singapore Anglican Community Services, formerly the Singapore Anglican Welfare Council, has focused attention on journeying with people with mental illness. By counselling, equipping and restoring them, SACS helped to give them hope as they reintegrated into their communities to become contributing members of society.

Since then, the range of services has grown in order to ensure our clients receive a seamless continuum of care as they journey to recovery. SACS provides a spectrum of professional services which has enabled it to be the largest VWO in the mental health care sector with around 2,000 clients annually. In our services, we do also include services to caregivers and others impacted by our clients.

Our rehabilitation services were accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International for 2015-2017 for our case management, day and residential treatment, and community integration services.

Our clients do not journey alone; they have counsellors, therapists, employment specialists, pastoral care staff, social enterprise personnel and health care assistants providing them with a support network for holistic mental wellness.

Residential Care Services
Hougang Care Centre (HCC) and Simei Care Centre (SCC) offer residential services. HCC has the capacity to accept 178 residents while SCC can accept 156. Residential programmes promote community integration and the development of independent living skills.

Day Rehabilitation Services
Day rehabilitation services provide structure for daily routines, support the learning of life skills and provide opportunities for social and recreational activities. The services are available at HCC, SCC and the Community Rehabilitation and Support Service Centres.

These services aim to help our clients to:

  • Understand their illness and manage their symptoms.
  • Actively manage life choices, opportunities and treatment.
  • Acquire vocational and social skills to prepare them for meaningful roles of their choice.
  • Learn independent living skills and obtain adequate support in order to live successfully in the community.
  • Access available resources in the community for their recovery.
  • Achieve a holistic balance in the quality of their lives; social, financial, occupational, educational & spiritual.

Senior Services

Our mission is to support seniors, regardless of race, language or creed, to be able to access services in the community as well as to be provided with case management and counselling services.

Our trained social workers will provide casework and counseling to manage complex cases referred to the center for closer monitoring or further referral to enable ageing in place in community.

Upon a thorough assessment of the clients’ needs, an Individualized Care Plan will be drawn up for each client, and reviewed over the next 3-6 months, or for as long as support is needed until case is discharged. We work with volunteers from the community to provide be-friending services to lonely seniors.

We assist our clients with:

  • Liaison and navigation of services such as Home Help, Home Nursing, Therapy, Meals-on-Wheels, escort for medical appointments, financial counseling, home assessments, compliance with medication, etc.
  • Psycho-social and counseling services
  • Mental condition Screening (CREST)

Our SAC runs a Senior Group Home located at Blk 373, Jurong East Street 32. It consists of six units which are fully furnished for 12-18 elderly residents aged 60 and above who are mostly ambulant but may require assistance with services or daily living activities and have little or no family support.

Applicants will need to meet HDB rental flat eligibility regulations and be referred by Agency for Integrated Care (AIC).

Residents’ well-being will be monitored by an executive onsite during the normal working hours on weekdays. Those with more complex needs will be referred to our case managers for further care intervention.

Special Area – SACS Family Care Centre

Set up in 1986, Singapore Anglican Community Services Family Care Centre provides temporary and safe accommodation and supportive service to persons experiencing family violence, and to empower them with healing and hope to re-integrate into community.

The Centre is more than a shelter. It has multi-faceted programmes that look into the client’s psychological, social and financial needs. The Centre aims to rehabilitate and empower our clients, so that they will be able to choose a life for themselves and their children that is free of violence, fear and oppression. We assist in the emotional and psychological healing of the women and children, and prepare the women for violence-free lives once they leave the Centre. We also strive to equip each client with essential skills that will increase their confidence to succeed in their various roles and responsibilities.
