About Us

Established in 1991, Dignity & Services (D&S)  is a non profit organisation working for  and with adults with learning disabilities (AwLD).


D&S supports individuals on the broad spectrum of neurological disorders  including  persons with Down Syndrome, autism, Asperger, dyslexia,  ADHD and other developmental delays.

D&S provides comprehensive and holistic support for the community of AwLD. Our work and services include 'Self Advocacy', supported living programme called 'OPTIONS' and employment initiative - 'Bake With Dignity'.


Ultimately, D&S is about ensuring  individuals - no matter the degree of challenges and anxieties they face in learning, communicating and using their motor skills - they are to be treated with dignity and respect. 

Towards this end, D&S activities are modelled to ensure:

* living skills are nurtured and sustained;

* the rights of AwLD are upheld and their voices heard; 

* job opportunities for AwLD; and

* public awareness and understanding on issues affecting AwLD
