SPD is a local charity set up to help people with disabilities of all ages to maximise their potential and integrate them into mainstream society. Through over 20 programmes that encompass early intervention, therapy, vocational training, assistive technology, day care, as well as educational, employment and social service support, we serve people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities. Founded in 1964 by a group of Rotarians, we were known as Society for Aid to the Paralysed (SAP). In the earlier years, SAP provided employment opportunities at its sheltered workshop to people with disabilities who had difficulties seeking open employment. We were renamed Society for the Physically Disabled (SPD) in May 1998 and subsequently to just SPD in July 2014 to better reflect the work that we do – serving people beyond physical disabilities. VISION To build an inclusive community where everyone is part of it, not apart from it. MISSION SPD is committed to working in partnership with people with disabilities to develop their potential to the fullest so they can be self-reliant and independent. VALUES We are committed to our clients and mission. We place integrity with compassion as a key virtue and we strive to be professional in our service delivery.
