About Us

Overview

The Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) is the national sports body for the disabled in Singapore. It is a social service organisation registered with the Commissioner of Charities.

The SDSC is the national sports body for Persons with Disabilities (PwD), founded in 1973. It aims to transform the lives of PwD through sport as a form of rehabilitative therapy, and means to realise their potential. Besides providing platforms for learning sport, SDSC trains talents to represent Singapore at regional and international competitions. Our success stories include Jason Chee, former para table tennis player and ASEAN Para Games gold medalist, and Yip Pin Xiu, Singapore’s first Paralympic gold medallist.

SDSC depends on the kind and generous contributions of corporate sponsors and members of the public to advance its cause.
