Our Services

Singapore Red Cross is dedicated to relieving human suffering, protecting human lives and dignity and responding to emergencies.

Our vast network of donors, volunteers, employees and partners contribute to our lifesaving mission by serving in the following services and programmes:

The elderly receives a series of social, community and health programmes to ensure their total wellness.
The disabled are supported with food, home monitoring and transport services. We also run Singapore's only home for those with severe and multiple disabilities, and offer specialised day care services for clients who can go home to their families.
Children and youth are given supplementary educational and enrichment programmes to nurture and empower them for a better tomorrow.
Others who have fallen through the cracks are offered essential help in the interim via targeted aid, basic healthcare and social assistance.

Community First Aid

Through the Community FirstAid programme, we mobilise First Aid volunteer teams for events ranging from the National Day Parade, Chingay Parade and Istana Open House to community sports events, family day carnivals, etc.
At the Singapore Red Cross, first aid duties are our way of protecting the community.
Currently, Singapore Red Cross provides more than 10,000 man hours of service every year, working with hundreds of certified First Aiders, among whom the champion could commit up to some 200 hours of service per year.

Transport Aid

Singapore Red Cross’ TransportAid service helps the elderly and disabled from low-income homes get to and from their healthcare service facilities, such as medical treatments, rehabilitation and day activity centres. For many wheelchair-bound patients, getting to and from their medical appointments can be challenging, because of their limited mobility. For those struggling financially, the problem is exacerbated as commercially available private transport services are not economically feasible for the long term. With the TransportAid service, those in need will be able to access their lifesustaining care and treatment, which they may otherwise be unable to get to. With your help, we can do much more!

Family Life Aid

Family Life Aid aims to build social, emotional and financial resilience of vulnerable families in Singapore through a holistic network of programmes, with a strong focus on children.
Our volunteer befrienders not only provide food vouchers for families to put nutritious food on the table, they also provide weekly quality home-based tuition based on a structured curriculum for children aged nine to 12 to provide them with the opportunity to advance in life. Besides that, our volunteers also offer home-based storytelling for children aged four to eight years old to enhance their literacy and confidence in the English language during their formative years.

Community Health on Wheels

Community Health on Wheels (CHoW) is a community-based mobile healthcare programme that brings free ancillary services and basic medical care to doorsteps in the heartlands.
CHoW is a volunteer-driven initiative that is supported by some 60 healthcare professionals from the nursing, allied health, social work and psychosocial sectors. They visit different parts of Singapore to provide essential services that complement the nation’s healthcare network, making medical support more accessible, and ensuring better continuity of care for patients.

Civil Emergency Response

Singapore Red Cross works to enhance community preparedness and strengthen resilience, to reduce the vulnerability during emergencies. During peacetime, we support civil and blood emergency exercises.
During emergencies, we play an auxiliary role to the Singapore government in response to disasters. We mobilise first aiders and blood donors to support government health services.
