Work Assistance Programme 

WAP is based on an individualised, wholistic approach. We believe that a good job match is critical. Hence the initial assessment of the client is very important. Appropriate job-matching means finding job positions that offer a positive environment with competitive pay and potential for growth and advancement for the potential job seeker. It also means offering a prospective employer a productive and reliable employee to assist in the normal daily operations of the business. The objective of this programme is to assist our Deaf clients to find a job and to support him/her to keep the job.

Support for Employers

TOUCH Silent Club helps employers to recognise the unique capability and career aspirations of the Deaf, and encourage them to extend recruitment opportunities to the Deaf community.  To support the employers to hire Deaf workers, we conduct the following workshops for employers:

  • Hiring and integrating the Deaf in the workplace (duration: 0.5 day)

  • Communicating with the Deaf in the workplace (duration: 1.5 day)

 You can assess the schedule here.

As part of this programme, TOUCH Silent Club has published a booklet ‘Hiring the Deaf – An Employers’ Guide’. The guidebook dispels misconceptions about hiring Deaf workers, offer tips on how to communicate with Deaf co-workers and how to integrate them into the workforce.  Please email to silent.club@touch.org.sg if your company would like to request for a copy.
