Anchored by the theme ‘Celebrating Friends’, this virtual event was a time to show our appreciation to our sponsors, donors, volunteers Titans, working partners and stakeholders who have extended their friendships and support to us.
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
Aimed at debunking misconceptions surrounding ex-offenders, we arranged for the filming of the Conversation, our latest awareness project where we gathered some from the ISCOS community, including our Titans and staff, to share their experiences and encounters on various facets of reintegration.
On 31 August 2021, we bade farewell to Mr Chng Hwee Hong who has retired from his role as the Chairman, ISCOS Board of Trustees. Under his leadership over the past nine years, Mr Chng has been instrumental in overseeing the growth of the co-operative as well as the birth of our charity arm, ISCOS ReGen Fund in 2018.
