Children & Youth

The first Colabs publication discusses the challenges that disadvantaged young persons face at home, such as an unconducive family environment. It examines how these challenges impact the young persons’ educational attainment and social mobility, and offers suggestions as to how givers could collaborate to close the gap for these individuals. The publication, based on the collective insights of over 100 participants who contributed during the series, can be found here.

Persons with Disabilities

This second Colabs publication reveals some of the challenges that persons with disabilities in Singapore face integrating into our community, especially after 18 years of age. This includes the lack of options available that engage them meaningfully and provide them with gainful employment. Some suggestions for collaborative solutions are then outlined, based in part on the collective feedback of over 80 participants who participated in the series.

This third and final Colabs publication looks at ways in which we can help seniors live more happily within our community given the challenges of ageing.

This publication, based on the collective insights of close to 100 practitioners, academics and stakeholders can be found here.
