WHAT WE DO
At Mamre Oaks, we engaged the members with different core activities such as cooking, baking, arts & craft, music and yoga to keep them active on a daily basis. We also organise fun workshops and monthly outings to encourage them to be interactive with their surroundings and to learn a new skill.
Mamre Oaks is a day centre catered for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
We are opened from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
For enquiries, kindly email to .
Mamre Oaks hopes to reach out to adults aged 16 and above with mild to moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities who require a higher level of support. These adults are unable to benefit from vocational training in special schools or social service sectors, and are currently not engaged in any open employment or sheltered workshops.
The impact of low income families with adult with IDD is even more evident. Hence, Mamre Oaks is committed as part of the social mission of Caritas Singapore to reach out to low income families.
THE ENABLING GUIDE
The Enabling Guide is for anyone looking for information and advice on schemes, services, supports and resources related to disability in Singapore.
Information enables persons with disabilities to make informed good decisions about the schemes and services that best suit their life choices.
SAFE & CONDUCIVE
We strive towards creating a place that is...
Our team of staff is equipped with skillsets in caring for our members with mild intellectual disabilities. Safety measures and considerations are put in place to ensure a safe and conducive environment.
NURTURING & EMPOWERING
Daily activities are planned and carried out to encourage members to be socially engaged. In addition, a volunteering system is in place to support our members. We believe in empowering them to lead life with meaning, dignity & fulfilment.
Building a community of support is key in our advocacy, and we will continue to create an environment that is welcoming, accepting and respectful.
Celebrating Life In A Special Way
“Every child, every person needs to know that they are a source of joy; every child, every person, needs to be celebrated. Only when all of our weaknesses are accepted as part of our humanity can our negative, broken self- images be transformed.”
– Jean Vanier
Appreciating our Volunteers
We are grateful for the support our volunteers have contributed over the years. Their presence has played a significant role in creating a nurturing and empowering environment for our members.
