SUN-DAC was pioneered by then Coopers & Lybrand, Singapore in June 1990. It was the first Day Activity Centre (DAC) catering for the intellectual disability to be located at a HDB void deck in one of Singapore’s most populous heartland estate. Today, this meaningful community project has grown into 3 DAC, with the Upper Thomson Centre being the biggest DAC of its kind in Singapore.
An affiliate of the NCSS, SUN-DAC aims to help people with disabilities live each day positively with tailored programmes of constructive activities. We also provide respite for parents and caregivers of people with disability through support and assistance services.
In 2020, as SUN-DAC marked its 30th anniversary, we took stock of what we have accomplished, and reflected on what we could improve so as to serve Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and their caregivers better. The new logo was revealed in May 2021 to reflect a new milestone, and our aspirations to serve better with greater impact.
The new logo depicts a more vibrant look as we embark on the next lap of our service to the community. The tagline “Serving the Differently-Abled” reflects our aim to recognise the potential of PWDs, how they are differently-abled and our desire to build on their strengths and abilities.
As an organization, we strive to be agile, add value and make a positive impact. In the logo, the sun represents the warmth and joy we provide to our beneficiaries. The hand in the logo conveys the message of hope and a helping hand. The colour orange represents vibrancy and warmth, whilst the colour yellow symbolizes optimism and hope.
