Contact Us

Care Community Services Society is the appointed operator of SG Cares Volunteer Centre @ Geylang since November 2020.

We are responsible for growing and coordinating volunteer supply, building volunteer management capabilities, and brokering partnerships between demand and supply to strengthen the town’s effectiveness in meeting community needs.

All efforts as an SG Cares VC go towards supporting the SG Cares Movement, championed by the SG Cares Office and co-led by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre and the National Council of Social Service, to build a more caring and inclusive home for all.

Testimonies

“We are thankful to the support provided by SG Cares VC @ Geylang in various initiatives.
The Gojek vouchers have been a tremendous help to our seniors in their transport costs, with comfortable rides to & from medical institutions.
By connecting us with volunteer groups, our seniors also have medical escorts to accompany them for their appointments.
We look forward to creating more impact on the community through our collective efforts.”
