For someone who has become disabled through disease or accident, being able to go back to work and become gainfully employed is important, both for the financial and emotional well-being of the patient. To help these people, SG Enable has launched its Hospital-to-Work Programme.
This programme provides persons with acquired disabilities with employment and case management support in gaining sustainable employment. The Case Manager will focus support on the client’s skills enhancement or re-skilling, complemented by employment services such as job placement and job support.
Disabilities supported are: Intellectual Disability, Physical Disability, Deafness and Visual impairment.
With a person-centric approach, the H2W programme allows for a higher degree of participation from clients due to its focus on their strengths and capabilities, rather than their limitations.
H2W will help clients identify personal goals that are achievable, with each goal developed into manageable steps that clients can feel confident in achieving. Hence, developing their self-confidence, allowing them to participate actively in the larger community and contribute to society.
SGE enables the delivery of transition employment services for persons with acquired disabilities together with our partners, ABLE and SPD. To understand more about the H2W programme, you can find related information by downloading the programme brochure here.
