RAISE (Resilience and Abilities for Independence through Support and Empowerment) is a holistic, home-based training programme that empowers Adults with Disabilities (AwDs) to live independently in the community.

A pilot initiative by TOUCH Community Services and supported by SG Enable, this 20-session training programme aims to equip AwDs with essential life skills for daily living, community living or personal and social well-being. These skills are meant to reduce the risk of regression and increase community integration of AwDs.

RAISE - Coach teaching daily living skills


RAISE provides structured support that holistically engages AwDs aged 18 - 64 and their caregivers in learning and applying essential life skills within their home and community environment.

A key component of the programme is to coach and equip caregivers with skills to support their ward's learning at home.

By the end of the programme, AwDs will attain essential life skills such as skills for daily living (e.g. brushing teeth, making a purchase etc), or community life skills (e.g. communication etc) that will work towards helping them become included and integrated in the community to achieve a higher quality of life.
