Did You Know?
Since 1989, the Industrial & Services Co-Operative Society Ltd (ISCOS) has been extending friendship and support to ex-offenders and their families so that they can lead meaningful and productive lives. As one of the founding members of the Community Action for the Rehabilitation of Ex-Offenders (CARE) Network which organises the annual Yellow Ribbon Project, ISCOS takes an active role in engaging the community to help ex-offenders and their families gain a foothold in the society.
As a social Co-operative for ex-offenders under the purview of the Ministry of Home Affairs, our programmes and services are geared towards enhancing the skills level of our beneficiaries, connecting them with supportive employers, providing social support through positive peer groups and mentors, building stronger family units, as well as extending academic assistance to their children in order to prevent intergenerational offending.
Past Events and Happenings
On 17 September 2019, we had a meaningful “Visit the Prison with ISCOS” event to host a selected group of friends to tour the prison facilities and understand the rehabilitation efforts.
Our September babies had an awesome time at a birthday party held just for them, generously hosted by FIKA Swedish Café and Bistro!
