Who We Are
Breadline Group is a social service agency established in 1975 and runs solely by volunteers with no paid staff. It started because we share a concern for the welfare of the old and needy in Singapore, and want to channel our effort towards alleviating their plight.
We are registered under the Societies and Charities Act and a member of the National Council of Social Service. Breadline operate with minimal overheads from members’ homes so that the funds we raise can go directly to the families in need. We are proud to share that our annual running cost has consistently stayed below 1% of annual turnover.
Our work centres on providing support from different financial assistance initiatives that helps the beneficiaries navigate through their challenges in life. With our Family Adoption Scheme, our volunteers visit the adopted families each month to provide them with a pillar of support and help them gain greater independence in their life. Most of the families adopted were the aged with multiple health issues and have difficulties in coping with their daily lives.
Besides, Breadline Group also support other initiatives like the “Hot Meal Scheme” where we assisted in funding hot meals that are served to the needy in the community.
Funding for Breadline comes entirely from individuals, foundations, corporations and fund raising projects. As a low cost charity, donors can donate with confidence as any amount donated are put in good use and goes directly to the beneficiaries.
