Objectives of the Program:
Bizlink Day Activity Centre (DAC) provides activities and services to equip adults with disabilities with skills to maximise their independence. The activities we conduct promote the development of cognitive, social, communication, language, and motor skills. We also provide physiotherapy and occupational therapy. We cater to persons aged 16 and above who are unable to take up open employment or attend sheltered workshops. Our services allow respite for caregivers and gives them the flexibility to pursue work and other interests while being able to rest assured that their loved ones are well taken care of.
