Hospital-To-Work Programme


After a life-altering event, persons with acquired disabilities often have to re-assess their career trajectory and explore new job opportunities due to changes in their abilities. The Hospital-to-Work (H2W) Programme supports persons who have acquired disabilities, such as from medical conditions or accidents, in their transition to work.

Jobseekers in the programme can get personalised career re-assessment, rehabilitation and job-matching services. Persons with disabilities who are already in employment can also benefit from job support services. Ultimately, together with our partners, ABLE and SPD, we aim to bridge the gap between persons with acquired disabilities and employers to create a disability-inclusive culture in every workplace.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Do we have to pay for the programme?
A: There are no charges for the case management, job matching, and job support components of the programme. However, if additional rehabilitation services are required, there is a fee subjected to means testing.

Q: What is the duration of the programme?
A: The duration of the programme is one year. Persons with disabilities who require additional support beyond this will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Q: What types of jobs are available?
A: We have a variety of job positions in the public and private sectors. You can browse the job opportunities available on SG Enable's Disability Employment Jobs Portal. The portal is updated regularly with new opportunities. Note that Singpass is required to log in.

Q: Can I join the programme if I am still going for therapy?
A: Yes. You can continue to go for therapy while on the programme. A case manager will work with you to understand the frequency of your appointments and discuss with employers for customised arrangements if you are shortlisted for a role.

Q: Can I join the programme if I have a job?
A: Yes. We support both jobseekers and employed individuals in their transition back to work. If you have a job, we can provide on-site job support for you and your employer. This may include making changes to the work environment or work processes, subject to the employer’s decision, to enable you to perform your job duties.  

Q: What is the difference between the Hospital-to-Work Programme and SG Enable’s Job Placement and Job Support Programme? Which one should I sign up for?
A: The Job Placement and Job Support (JPJS) Programme provides persons with disabilities with employment assistance. The Hospital-to-Work (H2W) Programme is targeted at supporting persons with acquired disabilities. The transition for these individuals can be challenging, so on top of general employment assistance, H2W participants receive personalised career re-assessment and rehabilitative services if needed.
