Abstract

While the basic social needs in Singapore, such as food, clothing and shelter, are met through direct government interventions and the contributions of non-governmental social service activities, there are still some vulnerable groups that need attention. SMU's Lien Centre for Social Innovation has identified six particularly vulnerable groups in a recently released report entitled, 'Unmet Social Needs in Singapore'. The paper, authored by former Nominated Member of Parliament Braema Mathi and Lien Centre research manager Sharifah Mohamed, provides recommendations on how these groups may be helped.
