Our Services

VCS Community Building Programmes bring people with similar interests, needs, and aspirations together. The programmes connect individuals together into a community, and provide a safe and comfortable platform for members to share and achieve collective learning and growth. The communities can tap on members’ unique strengths, and through joint effort and mutual support, enhance their collective capability to address their concerns, improve their quality of life and achieve their purpose and dreams.

  • Learn My Dialect
  • Project New Leaf


Started in 2006, Learn My Dialect aims to bridge the communication gap between seniors and the young to facilitate intergeneration bonding and promoting active ageing. The programme harnesses the language ability and skills of our seniors to benefit the society while allowing them to lead a meaningful and active lifestyle. Senior volunteers are trained as trainers to teach dialects to students, nurses, and even professionals such as social workers and doctors. Through learning dialects, it is hoped that our seniors and young people can overcome communication barriers to build stronger intergeneration bond and for dialect speaking seniors to be be understood and attended to adequately.

Project New Leaf (PNL) helps youths aged 21 and below who face challenges in pursuing positive developmental opportunities due to presence of conspicuous stigmatising tattoos and their past behaviours, reintegrate back into mainstream education or meaningful engagement such as work.

The project includes casework and counselling, community integration and professional tattoo removal by a medical practitioner.
