At SP Group, we are committed to sustained giving and meeting the needs of the community with meaningful and lasting impact.
We raise funds and contribute to programmes that support vulnerable seniors, youth, as well as children and their families.
The SP Heartware Fund, established in 2005 in partnership with Community Chest, supports services for 21,000 vulnerable seniors. These include befriending, rehabilitation, counselling and caregiver support.
SP Kids at Heart helps children from low-income families to enhance social mobility. In partnership with KidSTART Singapore, the funds provide for educational resources, bursaries, and assistance for home and developmental needs.
Our staff also contribute generously to the Fund, which SP matches dollar for dollar. In addition, SP underwrites all fund-raising and operational costs of the Fund and programmes, so that all donations will go fully to the social service organisations the Fund supports.
Volunteerism is an integral part of our DNA. Our staff volunteers, known as SP Heart Workers are passionate about giving their time, skills and effort to improve quality of life. They drive outreach activities for the vulnerable and underserved throughout the year.
We are honoured to be recognised for our sustained
giving and grateful to all our staff, business associates, customers and the public for your contributions over the years, in support of more social services recipients.
SP Kids at Heart was
launched in June 2021 to support young children from low-income families in their learning journey.
More than 5,000 children under KidSTART have benefited from learning tools, including digital devices for home-based learning. To foster early literacy and parent-child bonding, new initiatives were launched in 2022, including the KidSTART Sea Adventures interactive play and
KidSTART Stories, which provides lower-income families with their own mini-library to nurture reading habits.
Our SP Heart Workers are also on hand to support the outreach programmes.
SP is committed to empowering youth with access to educational pathways to pursue their career aspirations. In April 2022, we launched the
inaugural SP Group Engineering Study Awards with a contribution of S$1.35 million to the Institute of Technical Education (ITE). This will benefit 450 ITE students from lower-income families over the next three years.
Through the years, SP has also awarded more than 450 education scholarships, sponsorships and book prizes amounting to S$10 million to inspire and level the playing field for students with a passion for engineering.
SP Heart Workers organise outreach activities for social service users throughout the year. These include befriending activities at Senior Activity Centres, helping seniors with their grocery runs, conducting digital clinics and more. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, SP Heart Workers also partnered FairPrice to bring a mobile supermarket to the doorstep of seniors.
We collaborated with Temasek Trust to support the Project Silver Screen, a programme that provides vision, hearing and oral care screening for seniors aged 60 and above.
SP’s staff have also been part of national-level efforts to provide pandemic relief to the public, including the manning of hotlines for Temasek Foundation’s Stay Prepared programme and Ministry of Health’s home recovery scheme.
At SP, safety is our highest priority. Staying free of accident and injury is an important part of our culture, for our community, our staff and our contractors. We organise outreach activities and produce educational resources to raise public awareness on gas safety and to prevent accidents arising from gas leaks and fires.
Saving energy and cost
We help the public to efficiently manage their energy consumption and empower them to build a sustainable future. Our energy-efficiency tips, took kits and interactive features on the SP Utilities App and other digital platforms.
Our volunteers promote safety and energy-efficiency awareness during our outreach activities in the community.
It is mission critical to respond to emergencies swiftly, safety and effectively. This readiness enables us to power every household and business in Singapore with world-class reliability, round the clock.
In partnership with Temasek, SP has contributed towards various initiatives to protect and keep Singapore safe. To encourage individuals and families to be prepared for emergencies, we helped to produce and deliver starter kits with N95 masks to every household in Singapore.
In strengthening Singapore's pandemic defence in the fight against COVID-19, we were part of the Temasek Foundation initiatives to provide free hand sanitiser and reusable masks to all residents in Singapore. Our SP Heart Workers helped with distribution at a collection centre and our call centre managed these projects' public phone hotline.
