ACES NDP 2018 Volunteering Opportunities

Started in 2014, ACE Seniors (ACES) NDP programme had one goal in mind: to bring National Day celebrations to frail seniors who are unable to attend the ‘live’ celebration at the stadium or be at home with their loved ones.

Since its first celebration at Bright Vision Hospital in August 2014, ACES has reached over 2,150 residents and staff across 10 nursing homes and community hospitals. Every August, ACES set up a carnival at these places, filled with food and games of yesteryear for all to enjoy.

This year, join ACES as they bring the same celebrations to 15 nursing homes and community hospitals!

Be it being involved in the pre-event activities or on the event day, know that your involvement will set the pace for an inclusive Singapore!

Bring your family, colleagues and friends to make this August a memorable and meaningful one.
