TOUCH Centre for Independent Living is a service under TOUCH Community Services.

  • Equipping persons with intellectual disabilities with skills for independent living
  • Promote independence and integration to society

TOUCH Centre for Independent Living (TCIL) believes that individuals with intellectual disabilities can be empowered to contribute to society and live a dignified life. TCIL is a day activity centre that seeks to provide a competency-based training programme suitable for adults with mild intellectual disabilities.

Our aim is to empower them with functional knowledge and skills so that they can live independently in the community. The client-focused training programmes teach daily living, personal and social, as well as pre-employment skills to the trainees using a Mediated Learning Experience approach. 

To improve their quality of life, we conduct enrichment programmes such as visual arts, sports and recreational activities. Many of the clients have won awards/prizes at art, athletics and sports competitions.

We help trainees with exceptional talents to hone their artistic skills. At TOUCH SpecialCrafts, we showcase their works through direct sales, auctions and charity fairs, and provide employment for those who are artistically inclined.
