We have been appointed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) as one of the Cluster Operators to run Senior Cluster Networks (SCNs) in 3 zones, namely Queenstown, Tampines/Changi and Clementi/Bukit Timah where we are already operating Senior Activity Centres (Rental) [SAC (R)] and SAC Cluster Support [SAC (CS)]. The 3 key services within the SCN are SAC (R), SAC (CS) and Senior Group Home (SGH).
We believe in facilitating the integration of lonely seniors within their neighbourhoods so that they may age in place with grace and dignity. Through Community Outreach Services, we manage Senior Activity Centres (SACs) that provide a wide array of meaningful activities and courses free-of-charge or at heavily subsidised rates to seniors.
The programme currently reaches out to about 3,000 seniors assisted by 140 centre volunteers.

WHY THE NEED FOR THIS PROGRAMME
Community Outreach Services supports the government’s aim to encourage active ageing. Research shows that keeping active helps us to stay healthy in body, mind and spirit so that we can enjoy our golden years. Senior Activity Centres conduct activities and programmes that help seniors to be physically and mentally alert, and continue to keep them plugged into a social network.
The objectives of the Senior Activity Centres (SACs) are as follows:
- To improve low-income seniors’ quality of life;
- To prevent social isolation of poor and vulnerable seniors in identified blocks of HDB rental flats; and
- To facilitate better co-ordination in the provision of community-based support services to the seniors.
ELIGIBILITY & PROFILE OF BENEFICIARIES
The eligibility and profile of our beneficiaries under the Senior Activity Centres (SACs) are as follows:
- Age 60 and above
- Seniors staying in identified HDB rental blocks near the SAC
- Vary in economic and educational profile
