Home Sweep Home 2017 – Calling for Volunteers

What is Home Sweep Home?
Home Sweep Home will entail a mass clean-up of 200 homes belonging to vulnerable elderly and those living with disabilities living in one- or two-room rental flats, as well as litter-picking across Chai Chee, Bukit Merah and Toa Payoh. Volunteers are invited to help out on Event Day at any of the three locations.

Date: 8 July 2017, Saturday
Time: 830am to 12pm
Venue: Either Chai Chee, Bukit Merah, or Toa Payoh

Home Sweep Home has three main components:
1) HomeWorks Lite (8.00am – 11.30am)
A light version of Habitat Singapore’s regular home cleaning Project HomeWorks programme, where volunteers help clean up the houses of vulnerable elderly and people with disabilities living in one- and two-room rental flats.

2) UnLitter Red Dot (9.30am – 11.30am)
A mass litter-picking exercise where we seek to start conversations about what it means to care for one’s living space beyond the four corners of our homes.

3) Carnival (11.30am – 2.00pm)
The event will be rounded off with a carnival that showcases the Habitat Village (an interactive exhibition of Habitat’s work), and potentially a participant-contributed collage to represent their collective efforts to make Singapore a decent place to live.

Roles:
Volunteers will help to facilitate the litter picking segment of Home Sweep Home, usher teams and encourage conversation with participants on how we can inculcate a civic-mindset in keeping Singapore clean rather than clean-ed!

Requirements:
Volunteers must be independent, responsible and eager-to-help. More importantly, you must enjoy working with people and ensure that the participants are well taken care of. Bonus points if you are an extrovert who enjoys engaging and motivating people!

All volunteers will be required to attend one briefing held in late June.

For enquiries, please contact Joyce at joyce@habitat.org.sg or 6744 7326.

Registration deadline: 9 June 2017, 2359 hrs

Introduction on AIP-CCT Programme
The AIP-CCT programme is a post-discharge, nurse-led home visit service provided by a multidisciplinary team, comprising, nurses, doctors, therapists, pharmacists, medical social workers and healthcare assistants, to support patients in addressing their clinical, psychosocial and home environmental needs.  The aim is to support patients and their caregivers so that they can manage well at home and in the community.
