Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) was founded in May 1962 by a group of philanthropists who saw the need to provide equal opportunities for children with intellectual disabilities to receive education and later, to be integrated as contributing and responsible citizens in Singapore.

Since then, MINDS has grown to become one of the oldest and largest non-governmental organisations catering to the needs of people with intellectual disability in Singapore.

We run 4 Special Education Schools; 3 Employment Development Centres (EDCs); 4 Training and Development Centres (TDCs); 2Homes (one for adults, one for children); and 1 Hostel (for adults) to cater to the educational, vocational, social and welfare needs of people with intellectual disability.

To further complete our services and ensure sustainable employment opportunities for our clients, we also have our own Curriculum Development Unit, Allied Health Professionals and Social Enterprise Department.
